Autism Diagnosis / Autism Testing

Before your child can begin ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapy, you must obtain an official autism diagnosis. We offer thorough autism screening, autism testing, and autism diagnosis services. If you suspect your child is displaying autism symptoms, those of a developmental disability, or even a lack of verbal or social interaction skills, our autism center can help. 

If you’ve been researching getting an autism diagnosis, you’ve probably found it can take months or even years to get an official test and diagnosis of autism. At ABA Centers of America, we are focusing significant resources on the ASD diagnostic assessment process to eliminate or shorten any wait time.

Our streamlined, four-step process for autism testing and screening:

  1. Call us for an initial consultation regarding your child’s autism test. We will listen to your concerns and ask some initial autistic screening questions. We will also verify any insurance benefits to help you and discuss appointment options.
  2. At your appointment, our clinical team will meet with you and your child. The tests, including the ADOS-2, the current gold standard in autism assessment, are all play/activity based in a warm, friendly setting. In some cases, we may incorporate an Asperger’s test or the Raads R Test. The typical autism assessment test involves several components and lasts two to four hours.
  3. After your autism diagnosis test appointment, our medical specialists will review the results of your autism test session, which usually takes one-to-two weeks.
  4. At a second appointment, we will share our findings and any diagnosis with you, including a written report and recommendations on the treatment of autism, if needed.

    ABA Centers of America was founded to help children with autism and related disorders. We pay close attention to the comfort level of your loved one during the autism diagnostic process, and we are generous with our time and support in discussing the results.

ABA Centers of America Works Toward the Following Goals

Learning critical life skills

Alternatives to unwanted behavior

Building up inherent strengths

Developing social and communication skills

Individualized ABA Therapy

ABA Centers of America doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” treatment program. Our clients are individuals, and each of them is experiencing the world in a unique way. So our therapy plans are always customized, and they allow clients to work toward mutually agreed-upon goals.   Our treatment begins with a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) getting to know the client and family. They will conduct an assessment to determine recommended program goals. A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) will then work with the client and familyobserving and recording behavioral data that will help the BCBA create targeted programs. Each session is customized specifically to the child’s needs and family’s goals.

What to Expect

A typical course of ABA therapy involves 20-40 hours a week for 1-3 years. ABA therapy programs are designed by our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and conducted by our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). Both are governed and licensed by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).



Our treatment begins with a BCBA getting to know your family, learning what behaviors you’re interested in improving and conducting an assessment to measure skills and abilities.


Goal Setting

Using the results from the assessment, our BCBAs collaborate with the family to create specific, reachable objectives to address desired behavior, new skills and recommended goals.


Custom Planning

The BCBA develops a program to teach target skills. Then an RBT works directly with the clients to implement the agreed-upon therapy and collect critical data.



The BCBA and RBT work together, measuring targeted skills and making changes to the program if necessary.
