Common Characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental condition that can involve persistent challenges in social interaction, speech, nonverbal communication, and restricted/repetitive behaviors. The characteristics can vary significantly across individuals, but some common traits include:

  • Difficulty with Social Interaction: Challenges in understanding and responding to social cues; difficulty in developing and maintaining relationships.
  • Impaired Communication Skills: Delayed speech development, difficulty in carrying a conversation, or complete lack of speech in some cases.
  • Repetitive Behaviors: Engaging in repetitive movements, routines, or activities; insistence on sameness and resistance to change.
  • Sensory Sensitivities: Over or under sensitivity to sensory inputs like sound, light, and touch.
  • Limited Interests: Intense focus on specific topics or objects, often to the exclusion of other activities.
  • Challenges with Emotional Regulation: Difficulty in managing emotions, which may result in disruptive or aggressive behavior.
  • Developmental Delays: Variability in cognitive and learning skills, with some individuals showing exceptional skills in specific areas and challenges in others.

It’s important to note that every individual with ASD is unique, and the presence and severity of these characteristics can vary widely. Early diagnosis and tailored support can offer significant benefits.

Answering Parent’s Top Questions About Autism Spectrum Disorder Testing

No, you do not.

This type of assessment is typically offered by practices that are considered out-of-network providers. We will provide a Superbill with CPT codes that are often reimbursed to some extent for this service. You can then check with your insurance company to see whether they will cover part or all of the assessment.

Please see our Billing & Insurance page for additional information.

Testing is typically one 2-hour appointment with your child and a 2-hour in-depth interview with parents only.

We recommend telling them that they will meet a friendly teacher to do some activities and that we’ll ask them some questions.

Parents will be included in all testing for toddlers and young children. Your clinician will give you more information on whether you will be included in the testing session. Please feel free to inquire; we understand every situation is different.

Our comprehensive report will be ready for you within two weeks of completing all testing and interviews.

We meet to review it together, answer questions, and provide helpful recommendations for therapies, professionals to follow up with, and community resources.
