Pre-Diagnostic Care Coordination
OWCA provides diagnostic evaluations for children and youth who are suspected of being on the Autism Spectrum. In response to the long wait times at local diagnostic centers including our own, our diagnostic evaluations will now consist of 4 visits.
The first of these visits is our pre-diagnostic care coordination visit. During this visit a family works with our care coordinator to screen children and youth for ASD, obtain an individual and family medical history, identify caregiver concerns and most importantly begin linking children and youth to therapeutic and/or educational interventions
ASD comprehensive diagnostic and medical consultative services
We know that there is much anxiety and fear when you suspect your child may have autism. These feelings are natural and we are here to help. The first step is identification. If there is a diagnosis of autism, we firmly believe that there is hope when parents, caregivers, and individuals living with autism have access to support, knowledge, and therapeutic interventions.
CHADIS is our online system that delivers developmental and health questionnaires directly to parents and families. CHADIS results come directly to your doctor(s) at The One World Center for Autism. You should complete CHADIS questionnaires before every visit It will help us address any concerns about your child’s health and development.
