Autism Testing

Autism Testing

Gulf Coast Family Services follows the Alabama Regional Autism Network recommendations for diagnosing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) for children, adolescents, and adults. We use numerous screenings, clinical interviews, and formal assessments, including the ADOS-2, considered the Gold Standard for diagnosing ASD, to collect information needed to determine a diagnosis.


Testing Process

  1. Intake Session with the Client, including the Client's Parents for minors.
  2. Two Testing Sessions with the Client
  3. Assessments are sent to the Client's raters who are participating by answering questionnaires digitally.
  4. Report Writing once all assessments are complete.
  5. Results Session

A detailed psychological evaluation report is created for the client, which is presented at the results session. Two clinicians, including a clinical psychologist, review, consult, and sign all reports.

Treatment recommendations and resources are provided in the report.

Session Fees

Gulf Coast Family Services strives to provide the most effective ADHD and Autism testing and therapy strategies for our clients. Unfortunately, many insurance companies restrict these efforts. It is not our desire to limit our services based on insurance restrictions.

Therefore, Gulf Coast Family Services does not file with insurance. However, we offer super billing for clients to file for out-of-network provider reimbursements with their insurance. Please check with your insurance provider to see if they allow such reimbursements.
