It’s a service that empowers and strengthens children, parents, and the entire family.
The Hedgehog Health Parent Coaching Process.
Early Signs that Your Child Should be Assessed
While every child is different, there are some common behaviors that may prompt you to have your child pre-screened for autism. The following behaviors can be seen throughout your child’s first 15-24 months.
Our People and Process Make The Difference.
An autism diagnostician needs to be a doctor who specializes in the mind and its development. Ours are psychologists, developmental pediatricians, neurologists, and psychiatrists. They have all the credentials, experience, and compassion you and your child need. Here’s the big difference: We don’t restrict ourselves to a specific geographical area when sourcing diagnosticians. Instead, we find a qualified and available diagnostician and bring them to you.
Diagnosed in 3 days.
I was endlessly worried about my son, Brendan. He seemed to lag behind other children at daycare and just seemed more isolated. I talked to my pediatrician, who advised getting an autism screening and diagnosis. She also told me that due to waitlists, it could be months before I had the results and we could make a plan. I started looking for a better way.
HedgeHog was able to get us an appointment for diagnosis the same week we called, and the process went so smoothly we were blown away! Before finding HedgeHog, we called many providers and never received a call back. We'd definitely recommend HedgeHog Health to anyone.
