The Vermont Center for Children, Youth, & Families partners with the Vermont Department of Health to offer comprehensive autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnostic assessment for individuals up to the age eighteen.
We are dedicated to offering interdisciplinary evaluations using a collection of assessment tools that aim to capture each child’s unique array of strengths and struggles for which we can potentially offer an ASD diagnosis and suggest tailored family-based recommendations for prevention, health promotion, and intervention.
Over the course of multiple visits, we assess several domains of functioning (including Theory of Mind, Cognitive, Adaptive Skills, Communication, Social Skills, Emotional-Behavioral Health) and consider information from multiple informants. We work closely with a family’s current providers and during our intake process (shared with the
Medical Center’s Pediatric Developmental Evaluation Program
), our team of specialists reviews each referral to ensure proper triage based on a variety of factors.
Additionally, we are a teaching site for trainees, which may include: psychiatry residents, child & adolescent psychiatry fellows, communication sciences and disorders graduate students, pediatric residents, and UVM Larner College of Medicine medical students.
