Diagnostic Evaluation

The Greenville TEACCH Center provides diagnostic evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults who are thought to have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) but have not yet received a diagnosis. This center partners with the Raleigh TEACCH Center to provide assessments for our clients.  Evaluations focus on diagnosis and recommendations. For families living in the Greenville catchment area, the first appointment will occur at the Greenville TEACCH Center and the day-long assessment appointment will occur at the Raleigh TEACCH Center.

What does an evaluation include?

  • Diagnostic interview with individual and/or caregivers and questionnaires
  • Review of medical, social, academic, and developmental history
  • Testing sessions with the individual using empirically-based assessments including the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – 2nd edition (ADOS-2) and the Childhood Autism Rating Scale – 2nd edition (CARS2)
  • Other additional assessments as needed

Results are shared during an interpretive conference, typically at the end of the diagnostic day. Family members of an adult who is their own guardian are welcome to attend the interpretive conference at the invitation of the individual.

Report with recommendations is mailed to the family or individual (if client is an adult). Reports include an individualized, written evaluation summary with a list of recommendations and resources.

If you would like to begin the evaluation process, go to the referral page or call our office at 252-830-3300 for more information.

Intervention Services

PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSIONS: These sessions are available to clients of all ages using evidence-based practices to meet the individual needs of the client and family.  A treatment plan is established with client and/or family input informed by the individual’s strengths, interests, and needs.  Central to the foundation of TEACCH’s intervention approach is our underlying philosophy that parents know their child best and that TEACCH can provide information, strategies, and support to address the needs of their child.  Intervention duration, frequency, and scheduling is based on the unique needs of each client and family.  Depending on the age and needs of the client, interventions may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, visual supports, parent coaching, and naturalistic interventions.
