Dr. Newman's Evaluations for Autism & Aspergers

In my experience, I have found that diagnosis of both autism and Aspeger's disorder is often misdiagnosed in many referral that I receive. Dr. Newman's expreince with working with these conditions from infancy through adolescne has given him insight into the types and intensity of behaviors that are needed to make an accurate diagnosis. Dr. Newman also trained on the ADOS (Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale) to ensure that he uses what is a considered a kind of "gold standard" for the evaluation of autism and Asperger's disorder. In addition, he is very aware of what is called the "differential diagnosis" between autism and Asperger's from attention disorders, nonverbal learning disability and other conditions that could be contused with the disorder. It is very important to ensure a correct diagnosis as treatment for the wrong disorder could be futile or even somewhat damaging to the child's emotional functioning.
