Empowered Learning Transformation Centers provides psychological services, specializing in Autism testing in Manasquan and Autism diagnosis in Manasquan.
We have licensed psychologists who are able to perform testing to confirm or rule out an Autism diagnosis on the spectrum.
Autism-specific assessments include the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R).
These assessments are often required by service coordinators at the county board of developmental disabilities when children (even those who have previously received an Autism diagnosis somewhere on the autism spectrum) turn six and 16 years of age.
Autism and Asperger's disorder often manifest early in life.
An Autism spectrum disorder (which includes former diagnoses of Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified) is a condition that is typically manifested early in life by the following characteristics:
Problems with social interactions and communication
- Avoids eye contact
- Limited range of facial expressions
- Problems making or keeping friendships
- One-sided conversational style
Odd behavior and speech patterns
- Under or over-reactive to sensory input
- Resistant to changes in routine, insists on same food, clothing, etc
- Intense hobbies/restricted range of interests
- Repetitive movements (i.e., lining up objects) or repetitive speech
- Odd speech patterns
In addition to Autism diagnosis in Manasquan and Autism testing, we are also able to administer assessments of intellectual ability (IQ tests) such as the Differential Ability Scales and the Stanford-Binet.
We also offer assessments of academic achievement, such as the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test and the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement.
The latter assessments may be used for parents who suspect their child has a learning disability in reading, writing, or mathematics.
Assessments of adaptive behavior (life skills i.e., what an individual can do independently) and various rating scales used for confirming or ruling Autism diagnosis and other diagnoses such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are also available.
