Child Autism Spectrum Test (CAST)

The CAST  is a screening questionnaire developed by the Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge to identify symptoms of autism spectrum disorders in children. This parent-completed questionnaire captures a wide range of social, communicative, and imaginative behaviors in children aged 4 and older. This screening tool is crucial for its role in early identification of ASD, enabling timely intervention and support.

How do we test for Autism?

ADOS-2 (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule)

The ADOS-2 is a gold-standard diagnostic tool that assesses communication, social interaction, and play or imaginative use of materials for individuals suspected of having Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

  • Module Selection: We select from five different modules based on the child’s age and communication level, ensuring the assessment is tailored and appropriate.
  • Administration: Our clinicians conduct a series of structured, play-based tasks to observe the child’s social interactions, play skills, behaviors, and communication.
  • Scoring and Reporting: Post-assessment, results are meticulously scored and reviewed by a licensed psychologist, who then collaborates with your child’s physician to integrate these findings into a comprehensive diagnostic report.

If needed, we may also use additional standardized tests to ensure a comprehensive assessment.

I feel my child is safe and happy at this center. He has progressed so much since he has started and runs to the door upon arrival. He truly loves the center and his therapists. It makes me feel reassured as a parent of a nonverbal child being able to see how much the therapists truly enjoy being with my child and helping him. They push his limits and it has been nothing but great for him. I highly recommend this center.

Everyone has been friendly and kind to our child, the facility is well taken care of, the other children seem to enjoy it as well, and my child who doesn’t even go to our family, is willing to go in and me leave them. She is developing more tantrums on our end, but the stuff that we are overcoming tops it all. Great place and staff!

FAQs About Our Diagnostic Services

To prepare for your child’s diagnostic evaluation, please review these common questions and answers:

Our diagnostic services are currently offered in Texas and Colorado.

At Behavioral Innovations, we currently offer a flat fee for diagnostic evaluations. The straightforward pricing includes the initial consultation, assessments and observations, feedback sessions, and the written report.

Our company aims to include our diagnostic services under many insurance providers in the future. At this time, our diagnostic services require clients to pay the expenses out-of-pocket.

Many insurance companies may require a re-evaluation to continue receiving insurance coverage for related services. Usually, the diagnostic reports are valid for around three years. It’s best to schedule an appointment months before a report expires so you can avoid any gaps in care coverage.

Professionals at Behavioral Innovations can guide you through options for the next steps. We offer applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy for children with ASD. The scientific approaches aim to help children improve their lives and reach their full potential. You can read our article about ABA therapy to learn more.

With the right support and interventions, some children diagnosed with ASD can show positive changes and improvements over a significant amount of time. Generally, ASD requires long-term support and is considered a condition that an individual may experience throughout their entire life.
