Awareness of Aspergers Syndrome is
growing. Sadly, professional training and experience working with
children and adolescents with Aspergers is still hard to find.
Evaluating a child for possible Aspergers is a complex process that involves
spending time with the child, gathering background information from parents
and teachers, directly testing the child, and integrating information into a
comprehensive picture. Beyond merely "labeling" the
professional also needs to know what can be done that will help the child and
improve their life. The ASAP
program has trained professionals with extensive experience working with
children and adolescents with Aspergers Syndrome who routinely conduct
comprehensive evaluations that provide practical and detailed recommendations
for immediate support of the child.
We believe that our approach to
evaluations is the best way to help children and adolescents. When you
come to ASAP the actual testing of your child is not handed off to someone
other than the doctor. Your child is tested by one of our two doctoral
staff throughout the testing process. Unlike nearly every other practice
we know of, you meet with either Dr. Robert Montgomery or Dr. Christine
Montgomery for each and every aspect of the assessment process. We use a
process approach to our evaluations. That means that each child that
comes into our clinic is given a tailor-made evaluation - not a package of
tests that are routinely given to all children and adolescents seen.
This process lead us to actually come to know your child to a greater
We will be happy to help support
your child and to schedule a comprehensive evaluation as soon as
possible. We ask that you provide us with records and background
information in order to facilitate our understanding your child. The
information that we need is available in a Adobe PDF handout
Requested which is designed to help you
gather the information necessary for us to provide you the most accurate and
useful evaluation possible.
