A Parent's Guide to Assessment, acknowledges that formal assessment process can be a daunting experience for parents of children newly diagnosed with autism. By using highly technical language and focusing on “deficit performance,” assessments can often overwhelm and dishearten parents. In addition, outcomes are rarely explained in terms that parents can use to set goals for their children. This new Parent’s Guide to Assessment will serve to provide the tools to better understand the assessment process and, subsequently, utilize assessment outcomes to improve services and interventions for their children.
