Autism evaluations

At Sunbreak Therapy Services we provide comprehensive Autism evaluations for children age 5 and under suspected of having Autism. Parents participate in the entire evaluation process.

Our interdisciplinary approach involves team members from Psychology, Speech Pathology, and Occupational Therapy. These professionals will be working collaboratively, with a common goal, to make decisions about ASD diagnoses and sharing recommendations and resources. This allows Sunbreak to help support families by giving them a full picture of their child's needs. Our team is excited to offer these evaluations and possible ongoing treatment through speech and occupational therapy sessions.

Sunbreak's Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Darryn Sikora, has over 30 years of experience in evaluating for and diagnosing Autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. In collaboration with Speech Therapists and Occupational Therapists at Sunbreak, Dr. Sikora will conduct diagnostic evaluations for children age 5 and under. Each evaluation includes:

  • A diagnostic interview with parents or caregivers,

  • Use of a standardized autism diagnostic tool,

  • Developmental testing,

  • Clear feedback about evaluation results and diagnosis,

  • A written report from each clinician involved in the evaluation,

  • A road map for next steps,

  • Prescriptions for therapy as needed, 

  • Collaboration with your primary care provider.
