Our Professional Team currently provides diagnostic and assessment services. Those interested in making an appointment for diagnostic evaluation or assessment should contact The University Autism Center for Diagnosis and Treatment at (573) 986-4985.
Families and/or clients will be asked to complete a brief phone interview upon calling the center. A client history form will be mailed to families/clients to complete and return to the office before an appointment can be scheduled. Clients/families will be scheduled in the order the completed forms are received.
Following the evaluation or assessment, families/clients will meet with a multi-disciplinary team and are encouraged to invite, or allow the Center to invite, service providers who may provide direct or indirect support for treatment endeavors.
Pediatricians, Early Childhood Educators and Providers, Public School employees and others who routinely observe children and youth are encouraged to make referrals. Referrals require direct contact with the client and/or guardian prior to scheduling an appointment.
Our Professional Team will begin expanding services in collaboration with partners housed in the Center (TouchPoint Autism Services and The Tailor Institute) as well as other University Departments and Colleges to provide individual and group therapies and other treatment activities. We are hoping to add clubs, weekend and evening activities, and summer camps as scheduling, personnel and supports available allow.
