Screening is the first step toward therapy

You can’t tell if your child is challenged with a speech, language, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by reading a checklist, and we don’t expect you to try. At MeBe, we provide a list of warning signs simply to help you decide whether to seek screening for your child. 

From screening to diagnosis

If you observe any warning signs, we recommend you seek screening as soon as possible—regardless of your child’s age. You can request screening from your child’s doctor or from the early intervention program in your state. Use the list of early intervention offices by state on the Autism Speaks® website to find the program closest to you.

During the screening, your doctor will look carefully at behaviors that are considered red flags for ASD and will refer your child to a specialist if symptoms indicate the need for a full diagnostic evaluation. As you wait for a full diagnosis, we encourage you to contact MeBe to discuss your child’s symptoms and your family’s circumstances. We’ll help you explore funding options so you can get started as soon as possible.

Whenever you need us

At MeBe, we work with families every day to navigate the emotional and logistical challenges of the journey from screening to a program of therapy. Even if you don’t end up working with us, we hope you will call on us to answer questions and draw on our expertise in getting through the system. Our goal is to get your child and family into the most appropriate and effective program as soon as possible.
