What to Expect

Team of autism experts carefully evaluates each child

What can I expect the day of my child’s autism diagnosis appointment?

When you are concerned that your child may show signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), you want to find the best professionals to accurately diagnose your child. At the Henry Ford Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD), a team of experienced autism experts carefully evaluates your child using a variety of methods and tools.

At a separate feedback appointment, parents or caregivers meet with CADD team members to discuss the team’s diagnosis. The team talks with parents about a plan of action regarding any treatment or therapy your child may need to help him or her reach their best potential.
