Interdisciplinary Team Evaluations

Doctors with child

Your child will receive a comprehensive evaluation by our interdisciplinary team to ensure an appropriate diagnosis. You can expect that you and your child will be treated with respect, your questions will be answered as completely as possible and provided with recommendations based on evaluations designed to fit your child's and family's needs.

These evaluations are provided for children with developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders and Fragile X syndrome. We also serve children with special health care needs and graduates of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Developmental Evaluation

When a child's development is not progressing as expected, a comprehensive evaluation will help determine developmental functioning levels and need for intervention services. We will assess the following:

• Cognition and Learning
• Communication
• Social and Emotional Development
• Motor Skills
• Problem Behaviors

Autism Spectrum Disorder Evaluation

Children and adolescents who are suspected of having an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are evaluated by our experts in the field of autism using gold-standard measures. Our professionals will provide families with a diagnosis and treatment plan based on proven strategies. The following developmental areas may be assessed as part of this evaluation:

• Communication
• Social and Emotional Development
• Behavior
• Adaptive Skills
• Play Skills
• Cognition and Development

Fragile X Syndrome

For children who have Fragile X, a comprehensive evaluation will be provided by our interdisciplinary team along with support from other departments to ensure that the child's strengths and challenges are addressed. You can expect that you and your child will be treated with respect, that your questions will be answered as completely as possible and that you will be provided with recommendations based on evaluation results designed to fit your child's and family's needs.

The CCHD has formed a team of professionals with expertise in the areas of developmental medicine, behavior, genetics, sensory issues, speech and language, and psychiatry.
