Chattanooga Autism Diagnosis

Our Chattanooga clinic is pleased to offer autism evaluations for children ages 18 months to 5 years old. An official diagnosis is required before starting therapy, and at Siskin, families can receive an autism diagnosis in Chattanooga within 1-2 months compared to the 6-12 months most families encounter. If you are concerned about your child’s development and would like an autism evaluation, ask your pediatrician for a referral to Siskin to get started.

Chattanooga ABA Therapy

An evidence-based therapy for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, ABA therapy helps children increase positive behaviors while decreasing unwanted behaviors. ABA therapy is also helpful in improving focus, memory, social and communication skills, and academic performance. Our Chattanooga ABA therapy program is ideal for children 18 months to 12 years old and can be provided in home, at our clinic, or at school.
