The professional staff at Eden II Programs have training in multiple clinical disciplines and a vast level of experience with autism across the lifespan. This combination of clinical disciplines and lifespan experience come together to evaluate each individual and generate recommendations that will guide families in making short and long-term programming decisions for their children. Eden II offers a series of comprehensive evaluations at all stages of the lifespan to help families provide children with a meaningful, comprehensive and structural autism treatment program.
The various stages of the Lifespan Evaluation Program include:
*Diagnostic and Planning Evaluation (ages 2-3)
Evaluations at this stage seek to conclusively identify the presence of an Autism Spectrum Disorder using the most scientifically advanced diagnostic assessment instruments. The diagnosis of autism is supported by evaluations and programming recommendations from Licensed Analysts and Licensed Speech Pathologists.
* Early Program Planning Evaluation (ages 5-6)
It is critically important that individuals with autism receive appropriate educational programming at the start of their education careers.
*Vocational Planning Evaluation (ages 12-15)
All individuals eventually reach a point in their educational careers where programming shifts from academic abilities to practical skills.
*Transition Planning Evaluation (ages 18-21)
As individuals reach late adolescence and early adulthood, families must face the reality that school programs end at age 21.
