specialized testing and a clear diagnosis for children who may have autism

If you think your child may have autism, you want answers as soon as possible. That is why the Dayton Children’s developmental pediatrics team offers a “fast track” approach to diagnosis. This involves an initial screening called “First Steps,” followed by a more comprehensive team evaluation for children we believe may have autism. This approach has dramatically reduced the amount of time families must wait for a clear diagnosis, which means that therapy and other interventions can begin that much sooner. Research shows that early intervention can make a big impact on children who have autism or other developmental concerns.
