Clinical & Family Services

The CSUF Center for Autism is excited to offer clinical services to children and families! Services are offered on a fee scale that can be adjusted to provide services to a larger range of families in need.

Psychological & Developmental Assessment

Although our clinic is located in the CSUF Center for Autism, the Applied Developmental Core is interested in promoting the health and well-being of all children, and our clinical team has expertise in the assessment of a wide-range of child problems and competencies. In addition to evaluations for autism spectrum disorder (see below), our clinic provides assessments in the areas of learning disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, intellectual disability, behavior problems, anxiety and depression, and other childhood difficulties. Please contact us at autismcenterkids@fullerton.edu or (657)-278-7891 for more information.

Autism Screening & Evaluation

Early and accurate diagnosis is critical to promoting the development of children with ASD. The Center for Autism, Applied Developmental Core, offers early autism screening and comprehensive diagnostic evaluations using gold-standard assessment instruments that involve direct testing and observation of the child as well as structured interviews with parents or primary caregivers.

In addition to assessment of autism symptoms, diagnostic evaluations generally include evaluation of children’s cognitive functioning and adaptive skills. Depending upon the needs of the child and the areas of concern, services may also include assessment of children’s attention and executive functioning, memory, language, and academic functioning. Re-evaluations are available to assist families in monitoring children’s progress and to refine recommendations for educational and treatment planning.

Our clinical team is highly trained and specialized in psychological assessment and autism evaluation. Please contact us at autismcenterkids@fullerton.edu or (657)-278-7891 for more information.

Clinical Consultation

Doctoral-level psychologists specializing in ASD can meet with families to discuss issues related to assessment, information about ASD, treatment and educational options, and pathways for securing funding for necessary services. Assistance in managing parenting difficulties (e.g., “parent training”) is also available. Consultations are billed by the hour or half-hour. Please contact us at autismcenterkids@fullerton.edu or (657)-278-7891 for more information.
