What is Autism Testing?

Autistic people live worldwide and vary widely regarding their individual support needs. Each autistic person has a unique constellation of neurodivergent traits and characteristics. Some adults with greater support needs are easier to identify and receive information about how to best support themselves earlier in life. However, others may display fewer autistic traits and characteristics and spend years searching for understanding and explanations for why certain activities are particularly challenging. Autism testing is a way to systematically review your strengths, differences, and challenges to determine which types of support are most appropriate for your neurotype.  

What can be expected?

Autism testing can answer questions you may have been asking for a long time. After testing, we can provide recommendations for various forms of support to help you live your life to the fullest. We will strive to assist you in locating resources, treatment, and solutions to the challenges that you may face.  

How do I get started?

Start your Autism testing by clicking the link below to schedule a 30-minute introductory administrative conversation with our Testing Coordinator. Be ready to provide pictures of your insurance card, full name, birthday, and address of the primary account holder for your insurance. We’ll review your insurance benefits and provide an estimated financial responsibility for testing (cost for testing). We’ll inform you about our testing process, policies, and procedures and answer any questions you may have at that time.

If you are ready to move forward, you can schedule your testing appointments in this meeting. Afterward, you will be sent a link to your client portal where you will complete the required intake paperwork, which must be completed 48 hours after we schedule your appointment(s) to help your clinician(s) prepare for your session(s). Otherwise, you may lose your spot and need to reschedule. Please note that these may take 2-3 hours to complete.

Things to consider:

  • At this time, we are only able to test individuals who are 18 years old or older.
  • Please do not start this process unless you can afford an anticipated cost between $650 and $2100. This extensive process requires a lot of time from highly trained individuals, so we like to try to inform clients what they are getting into before starting the process.
  • We contact your insurance to obtain a financial estimate for testing. On the call, they do not guarantee that these will be the total amounts once the claims are fully processed, and thus, neither can we. So please be aware that the estimate given to the actual cost may differ, depending entirely on your insurance’s decision.
  • You MUST pay your estimated financial responsibility upfront before attending the first testing session with a clinician.
