Autism Diagnosis Resources

At BlueSprig, we understand the importance of a proper diagnosis in accessing the services and support your child needs. While we do not provide diagnostic services, we are committed to assisting families in navigating the process of obtaining a diagnosis. Below are resources other families have worked with in the past and may help you to identify resources available to you.

Local Medical Providers

Consulting a psychiatrist (MD), psychologist (PhD), or neuropsychologist (PhD) is often the first step in obtaining a medical diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. While a full neuropsychological evaluation may not always be necessary, a medical diagnosis is essential for accessing disability benefits. Connect with your nearby medical professionals to arrange an evaluation. Additionally, your insurance provider can provide you with a thorough directory of diagnosticians accessible in your vicinity.
