The Rothman Center for Pediatric Neuropsychiatry provides comprehensive evaluations. Evaluations consist of a medical history and neurological examination, as well as an interview with the individual and his/her family to assess psychosocial functioning. This evaluation will assess what psychiatric disorders are currently evident and identify other disorders that need to be ruled out. Diagnostic evaluations include information about the individual's developmental history, current and past problems associated with behavior, mood, social and academic functioning, and family history. Team evaluations are organized for the diagnosis of children with autism and related disorders. These evaluation teams include a combination of the following disciplines, depending on the child's needs: Psychiatry, speech-language pathology, behavioral therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy. Referrals are made to neurology, developmental pediatrics, neuropsychology, or genetics as indicated. Assessments using standardized instruments such as the ADOS (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule) and the ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised) among others are available for use. These evaluations offer comprehensive diagnosis, cognitive and developmental functioning, language functioning and medical etiologies. Recommendations are made at the conclusion of the evaluation for services that, in the opinion of the team, would be most beneficial to address the identified problems.
