Autism Assessment

The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center of New Orleans offers comprehensive autism evaluations for children aged 18 months to 17 years of age.

Led by Dr. Jennifer Longwell, a member of the Louisiana Behavior Analysts Board and one of New Orleans’ most accomplished experts in autism, the diagnostic team uses gold-standard evaluation measures that include the most recent version of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), as well as structured clinical interviews and other standard tests as needed.


How it Works

The evaluation includes a focus on developmental and medical history, learning abilities, social development, emotional and behavioral functioning, communication/language abilities, and the ability to complete age-appropriate self-care tasks.

Following the evaluation, a comprehensive report and a parent feedback session is provided, which includes diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations. If needed, we will then help you find the treatment services that would best serve your child.


First Steps

Clinic administrators can assist you in determining whether your insurance will cover your child’s evaluation. For more information or to schedule testing contact the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center of New Orleans at 504-383-3815.
