Does my child have Autism?

If you are a resident of British Columbia, you may be eligible for a public assessment through the BC Autism Assessment Network.

Some parents prefer a private autism assessment:

  • Shorter wait times 

  • Clarity and peace of mind sooner

  • Earlier autism intervention

  • School support:  BC Ministry of Education autism funding and support for each child diagnosed with ASD

  • Community funding:  Up to $6,000 annually for children 6 – 18 – Ministry of Children and Family Development ASD funding.

Do you see children under 6?

Per BC Health Standards and Guidelines, Dr. Chan cannot provide private ASD diagnosis for children under 6 unless the child has already been or will be assessed by a Psychologist, Pediatrician and Speech and Langauge Pathologist.  Please contact us if your child has been or is booked to see a Psychologist and Pediatrician.
