When caregivers hear for the first time that their child is being referred for an Autism Evaluation they often have many questions and concerns. I created this handout to answer a few common questions regarding an Autism Evaluation. It is important to address these questions in person or over the phone, but I also send home this handout for them to read when they are at home and have had time to process what has been previously discussed.
In this handout I briefly answer the following questions: “Why is my child being referred for an Autism Evaluation?”, “What happens during an Autism Evaluation?”, “How do the evaluators determine if my child meets disability eligibility for having an Autism Spectrum Disorder?” and “How will being identified as a student with Autism affect my student?”
