Norton Children’s Autism Center, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, offers comprehensive, family-centered evaluation and diagnostic services for children with suspected autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental conditions. We are dedicated to using evidence-based standards in testing and helping families get the care they need for their child. Children need to be referred by their pediatrician for ASD testing.
We provide specialized diagnostic services for children with suspected ASD. Our comprehensive, multidisciplinary set of tests follows the Autism Speaks-Autism Treatment Network diagnostic protocol. Our providers work to make these assessments as comfortable as possible for your child. Assessments may include:
An ASD diagnosis is just the beginning –– our providers will work with you to understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses, and develop a care plan that is unique for your child. If appropriate for your child, our providers may recommend additional testing for other health issues. Children with ASD can have sleep issues, and some can develop seizures or epilepsy.
