Autism Evaluations: Individualizing the Diagnosis Across Age and Ability Levels

School psychologists increasingly face the challenge of recognizing the full range of autism spectrum differences and discussing individual diagnostic results with parents and teachers. Parents and teachers look to school psychologists to provide a compelling description of the individual child that goes beyond the label of autism. Participants will learn how to use a visual framework and descriptive language to individualize the diagnosis of autism spectrum differences across age and ability levels using the MIGDAS-2 evaluation process. Topics include differential diagnosis considerations, linking the student’s profile to practical interventions, narrative report writing, and discussing the diagnosis with parents and teachers.
