Autism Evaluation

With autism spectrum disorder rates on the rise, families are waiting months for an evaluation at regional hospitals to determine if their child has autism. In Miami County, there is now no reason to wait and lose valuable time.

Riverside is one of many Ohio county boards of DD that now participates in the Autism Diagnosis Education Project (ADEP), which increases autism diagnostic capabilities with existing resources in Miami County. Our Autism Team, along with a local physician, have joined the Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) in collaboration with Akron Children’s Hospital/Family Child Learning Center. The project aims to correctly identify the early signs of autism and aid in early intervention.

We can evaluate children suspected of having autism and provide information to our local physician partner, Robert Landes, MD. This information will then assist Dr. Landes during his evaluation using internationally recognized evidence-based tools to determine whether or not a child has autism.

If you have a child between the ages 0-3 and suspect he or she may have autism, please contact Help Me Grow central coordination at (937) 440-3099 to arrange a visit with Riverside.

If your child is over the age of 3, call Help Me Grow central coordination at (937) 440-3099.
