Empower offers ASD Diagnosis for early detection and intervention of Autism. As we all know, the first few years of a child's age is the most receptive and essential period. Utilizing this period is crucial for children on the spectrum to avoid harmful behaviors and develop necessary skills.

Early intervention  

Research shows that the most effective intervention of Autism happens during the 0-3 age range. This time is when our mind starts to learn and develop social pathways. Children at this age are highly receptive to learning and new information.

Empower tries to capitalize on this crucial period by providing targeted intervention. The focus will be on communication, developing social skills, and learning. We try to minimize the impact of harmful behaviors.

Early Detection - ASD Diagnosis  

Early detection is the first step to intervention. Here are some of the symptoms to show your child may be at risk for an autism spectrum disorder.
