Your Child’s Autism Evaluation
Your child’s Autism Evaluation will take place over two different appointments. The initial appointment will be for testing. Please be sure to confirm insurance pre-authorization.
After your child’s testing results have been reviewed, you will meet with a provider to review the results and ask any questions. If your child is diagnosed with autism, we will provide you with information to assist you in learning about autism and to ensure you are on the right path to helping your child achieve their full potential.
All appointments will take place at:
1900 8th Avenue SE
Minot, ND 58701
When you call to schedule an evaluation, the intake coordinator will gather information about our child over the phone. We will try to schedule you as quickly as possible, however note that there may be a waiting period ranging from several weeks to several months.
If you would like to schedule an appointment or if at any time you have any questions about this process, please contact us at 701-857-5998 or toll free 800-707-1546.
