Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder that impacts the development of skills such as speech and language as well as social skills. It is accompanied by self-stimulatory behaviors, rigidity, and obsessiveness, as well as by sensitivity to sensory information, such as sounds and textures. An early and accurate diagnosis is highly beneficial in the effective treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders
Intellectual Disabilities (ID) are cognitive delays which can occur for a number of reasons. Cognitive and adaptive abilities both tend to be impacted. Such difficulties are typically life long in nature, but the quality of life can be enhanced with appropriate interventions. The diagnosis of an ID is essential in obtaining necessary services to assist individuals with an ID as well as their families.
Assessment is a process of seeking to understand an individual fully. Assessment takes forms such as carefully observing individuals, asking questions, engaging them in formal testing, as well as asking them to complete questionnaires. Assessment is a key element in gaining an understanding of a person’s needs and assuring that these needs are properly addressed.
