"The Yale Child Study Center's Developmental Disabilities Clinic provides a range of services for children with pervasive developmental disorders. This clinic builds on a long tradition of research and service at Yale for children and adolescents with autism and related disorders and their families. Comprehensive evaluations are provided by a multidisciplinary team of highly experienced clinicians. These evaluations take place at the Child Study Center over a two-day period, and focus on issues of diagnosis and educational programming/intervention. Each evaluation has three components: psychological testing, speech-language testing, and a psychiatric assessment. The assessment team works together to provide a report which is typically provided ten to twelve weeks after the assessment. A significant portion of the report is devoted to recommendations for intervention and educational planning. Depending on the needs in a specific case, referrals to other professionals, e.g., pediatric neurologists or geneticists, can be provided."
"in addition to our long-standing clinical program for children with developmental disorders such as Autism and Asperger syndrome, the Yale Child Study Center is one of the foremost research centers for autism spectrum disorders in the world. Several of our active protocols involve an assessment of your child's cognitive functioning and social communication characteristics. The assessment, an oral feedback, and written report are provided to research participants. The assessment is tailored to the research protocol but may be able to start you on your way while you still pursue a more tailored evaluation for your child through clinic."
WELL WHO WOULDNT WANT THAT CUTE FACE?!
