Fraser performs diagnostic evaluations for autism spectrum disorders. Our process has been refined through two decades of working with children, and draws from a broad base of experience in education, rehabilitation, social work, mental health and neuropsychology.
These evaluations are a combination of interviews, standardized testing and clinical observation. Fraser takes a team approach, with parents actively involved in the evaluation process so that they understand their child's diagnosis.
Immediately following the child's evaluation, clinicians and parents review the results together. A report that summarizes the findings and recommendations is also given to parents.
Neuropsychology Evaluations (ADD, learning disabilities, brain injuries, etc.)
The Neuropsychology Clinic at Fraser serves children and young adults who have neurodevelopmental or neurological disorders, including complex cases of attention deficit disorder (ADD), pervasive developmental disorders (e.g. autism, Asperger's syndrome), developmental delay, and learning disabilities. Neurological disorders might also include seizures, traumatic brain injuries, brain tumors, Tourette's disorder or infectious diseases.
Fraser neuropsychology evaluations measure intelligence as well as attention, academic, memory, fine-motor, visual-perceptual, and problem-solving skills. This gives a picture of a person's cognitive abilities and the level of social, emotional, and academic functioning. Our experts then design intervention plans that use a person's strengths in some areas to compensate for weaknesses in others. They prescribe educational and community resources that help to strengthen social, emotional, and academic performance.
Children's Mental and Behavioral Health Evaluations
Fraser Mental and Behavioral Health diagnostic evaluations and assessments are tailored to meet the individual needs of the child and family. They may consist of interviews, standardized testing, and/or observations, as well as review of any previous assessments. Clinicians will determine the diagnosis that best defines the child’s concerns, identify treatment or service needs, and make recommendations to the family and other service providers as needed.
Fraser serves children with a variety of mental health diagnoses, including Depressive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, ADHD, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Disruptive Behavior Disorders and Reactive Attachment Disorder.
Assessment staff include licensed psychologists, social workers, professional counselors and marriage and family therapists. Consultations are available from a psychiatrist, as well as experts in a wide range of children’s mental health issues.
