Diagnosing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the first step on your path to ABA therapy. If your child is showing signs and symptoms of autism, we'll help you through the whole process—from diagnosing through active treatment and ongoing support.
1 in 44
The prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in U.S. children is 1 in 44, as reported by the CDC in 2021. This figure has almost tripled over the last two decades as physicians learn more about the condition
All 50 states have passed autism insurance legislation, making diagnosis and treatment for ASD more accessible than ever. Most insurance providers offer coverage for medically-necessary autism services
Autism can be reliably diagnosed as early as age 2, and early identification and intervention affords the best opportunity to deliver meaningful developmental outcomes for life
How Help Happens
Receiving a formal diagnosis of autism opens critical doors to services and support, and Kadiant offers diagnostic evaluations in several of our regions.
When diagnosing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) the diagnostician will take into account the child's developmental history; interviews with parents, physicians, teachers, and other caregivers; their own observations; and the results of the standardized diagnostic assessment. The tools used to diagnose will be selected according to the age and stage of your child.
