Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluations (CDE)
The Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluation (CDE) is the national practice standard necessary to diagnose Autism as well as other developmental or behavioral disorders and indicate the most appropriate treatment(s) to address your child’s needs.
Common diagnoses include Autism Spectrum Disorder, Global Developmental Delays, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and Executive Functioning Deficits.
This information helps guide an appropriate intervention plan that can address the areas of weaknesses and strengths. The evaluation consists of a Comprehensive Developmental History, Review of medical and school records, Observations, and Assessments conducted by a licensed psychologist.
This information is also helpful when parents are seeking to support their child with behavior therapies such
as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
