Please expect an autism psychological evaluation to last between 2-4 hours depending on the participant’s age and functioning. We recommend completing this assessment in a single session, although breaks for lunch and rest are allowed. This evaluation must be completed in-person. Telehealth or virtual assessments are not available for autism evaluations. There are many different tests used throughout this evaluation so it is important to bring your glasses and/or any hearing aids as required.
A typical autism evaluation report takes around 8 weeks to complete, but this may vary depending on a number of factors including complexity, cooperation, and breadth of records. Once the report is completed, it will be provided to the referring source and may or may not be shared with the examinee directly. However, you will be given the opportunity to schedule a 30-minute feedback session to discuss pertinent findings and answer any questions.
