Our practice conducts assessments to diagnose Autism Spectrum Disorder in children, adolescents, and young adults ages 5 through 21. We utilize the most culturally sensitive and psychologically advanced measures to assess for autism. Our practice is trilingual and we speak Spanish and Portuguese and can also conduct the evaluations in these languages. Dr. Silva also differentially diagnoses for other disorders, such as trauma based disorders, anxiety, depression, PTSD, intellectual disability and learning disabilities, since these can appear to be Autism Spectrum Disorder, but in reality be something else. We undertake a comprehensive history of the child, since this is also quite important in the diagnosis of Autism. Most importantly, Dr. Silva understands and encompasses sensitivity and compassion in her approach to all assessments.
