The purpose of a diagnostic evaluation is to address specific concerns based on the individual’s referral question. A diagnostic evaluation can help individuals who struggle with any of the following:
- Anxiety (particularly social anxiety)
- Self-regulation challenges
- Difficulty establishing and maintaining long-lasting and healthy relationships
- Difficulty communicating with others
- Trouble reading social cues, understanding other peoples’ perspectives, and responding appropriately
- Difficulty with practical living skills
This type of assessment is also appropriate for children and adolescents who have had a recent comprehensive developmental or neuropsychological assessment, but for whom questions about specific social challenges or an autism spectrum disorder linger.
