Programs that offer any of a variety of therapeutic interventions, which may be used singly or in combination, to address the range of social, language, sensory and behavioral difficulties experienced by children and adults with autism and related disorders. Because of the spectrum nature of autism and the many behavior combinations that can occur, treatment approaches must be tailored to meet the individual needs of each person.

The Autism Spectrum Evaluation Clinic (ASEC) provides diagnostic evaluations for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or related conditions. We see children ages three and older to evaluate social and emotional development, communication, thinking, problem-solving ability, adaptive skills, and behavior.

Our teams have strong expertise in ASD and developmental disabilities. Teams may include a pediatrician, clinical psychologist, speech-language pathologist, family therapist, or clinical social worker. Trainees from different fields often observe and participate in clinics.
Following an evaluation, we support families to find resources for their children. We provide recommendations for treatment or other evaluations if needed. If a child is diagnosed with ASD, we refer to other services in the Autism Programs at the CDD or community services.
Medicaid or private insurance are billed for evaluations. The NM Department of Health supports the clinic.
