New Jersey: Autism Diagnosis, Assessment and Treatment

Continuum Autism Spectrum Alliance serves New Jersey. During the assessment process, each child receives a comprehensive functional assessment that identifies core deficits and problem behaviors that may be interfering with the child’s ability to learn and participate in daily life at home, school and in the community.  Every child’s program is individualized to meet his or her needs, learning style and guided by what is developmentally expected.
