For most, the rate for an autism evaluation is $1,800. The total cost includes all sessions, a report of results and recommendations, and a feedback session to explain results and answer any questions that you may have. For additional concerns or needs, we can address these needs for an additional cost at our hourly rate. To add additional testing to assess for ADHD, the evaluation cost is $2100. To assess for ADHD and assess for cognitive and memory strengths and weaknesses, the evaluation cost is $2400. Older teens may need to include more extensive information from parents and other contacts (teachers, therapists, more extensive record review), and additional charges apply.
Affirming Practice Info:
As a psychology practice, we are deeply committed to neurodiversity affirmation and strive to create a safe and inclusive space for individuals seeking support, particularly within the autistic adult community. Understanding the unique challenges faced by females, LGBTQIA folks, and other high-masking individuals who identify with autism is at the core of our practice. When conducting evaluations, we take great care to ensure that these personality traits are adequately addressed and accounted for. Your experience and perspective matter to us, and our aim is to provide you with an evaluation that truly reflects your individual strengths, challenges, and needs. It is important to note that the results of your evaluation are strictly confidential and will only be shared with you, which is a significant benefit of receiving a private pay psychological evaluation. We look forward to supporting you on your journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
We get many questions about whether getting an autism evaluation is “worth it” for people. Receiving an autism diagnosis can bring forth a multitude of benefits, both in tangible ways when sharing the information with others, and internally, in terms of better understanding oneself. First, an autism diagnosis provides individuals with a clearer understanding of their unique strengths, challenges, and needs. It can serve as a roadmap to self-discovery, enabling individuals to embrace their neurodivergent identity and develop effective strategies for self-care and self-advocacy. These benefits can also be found through self-diagnosis, though many of our clients feel that they need the evaluation and documentation to feel “right” about going farther down the path of seeking accommodations. Furthermore, sharing the diagnosis with trusted individuals, such as family, friends, or employers, can foster greater understanding, empathy, and support. This can lead to more meaningful and authentic relationships, accommodations that enhance overall well-being and success, and a sense of belonging within communities. Even if a diagnosis remains private, the personal insight gained through the diagnostic process can be incredibly empowering, validating one’s experiences and providing a framework for self-acceptance, self-compassion, and personal growth. Ultimately, an autism diagnosis can be a powerful tool in navigating the world with confidence and embracing one’s authentic self.
