Autism Spectrum Disorders
Our psychologists accept referrals from MultiCare providers for evaluation to rule out autism. However, PPPS is but one of multiple clinics within the Pediatric Neurosciences Center that evaluates children for Autism and evaluations are triaged to the most appropriate and available discipline by a centralized nurse navigator. Other disciplines participating in Autism diagnostic evaluations include Pediatric Neurology and Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics. In many cases, our evaluations of patients suspected to have Autism are interdisciplinary and are coordinated with providers from Developmental Pediatrics, Neurology, Speech & Hearing, Audiology, Occupational Therapy and Social Work.
