The First Step Is a Diagnosis

Your child needs an official autism diagnosis before starting care. Getting an autism diagnosis done can sometimes take months. But when it comes to your child, time is of the essence. We'll guide you through the evaluation process, so your child can access therapy sooner.

How Does Sprout Screen for Autism?

Sprout uses MCHAT-R and CAST screener tools, which are validated questionnaires that are widely used by health care professionals. The MCHAT-R is recommended as the first-line screening autism tool by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics for toddlers between 18 and 30 months old. CAST is another effective evaluation tool for children between 3 and 11 years old.
