A neurodevelopmental disorder that affects social communication and social interaction and your child may show some signs of restricted, repetitive behaviors.


Mrs. Stephanie Bailey, Longwood Speech Hearing and Learning Services certified accessor, will work with you through a semi-structured observation and evaluation of your child’s:

  • Communication
  • Social interaction
  • Play/imaginative use of materials
  • Restricted and repetitive behaviors

We will use the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule Assessment, which is a standardized assessment that is one part of a comprehensive evaluation to determine an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis. The assessment provides the opportunity to observe the behaviors associated with an autism spectrum disorder and construct a profile of the child's strengths and difficulties that will be helpful in planning intervention.
