About GRASP’s Autism Assessment services: 

Thanks for your interest in this new service! The demand for neuro-positive formal diagnosis is greater than we expected. And so we request, before you email in about GRASP’s Autism Assessment Services, please visit the Autism Assessments page and read through the FAQs. (If you are unable to do so for disability reasons, we understand and will respect you request for more information via email).

Additionally, we are now scheduling in August of 2022. As these dates are over a year out, we’re not requiring people submit a deposit or financial assistance paperwork until closer to their scheduled session. Also, we make every attempt to gauge and update when we expect to be booking sessions, however, sessions may be booking later once you’ve gone through the intake process. Thanks for your understanding and patience!
