Autism Spectrum Disorders: Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment

Autism Assessment Naperville

At Konick & Associates, we assess, diagnose, and treat a variety of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges including autism. These assessments go beyond best-practice testing methods. Before diagnosis, an in-depth evaluation provides valuable insight into your child or adolescent’s emotional, behavioral, functional, and/or educational needs.  Integrating information from parents, educational staff, and other treatment providers allows us to formulate a complete picture of the client.  A comprehensive report is provided to you with recommendations for home and school.

Following a diagnosis of autism, we provide treatment by establishing strategies to change patterns of behavior.  Recognizing the complex, specialized needs of individuals with autism,  we address the various aspects of your child's life that may be impacting his or her functioning.

We work with teachers, social workers, parents, and your child to find ways to help accommodate and minimize the triggers that may cause negative behaviors.  From the solutions provided, your child benefits from a better school experience, and a better home experience as well.
