San Diego Clinical Psychologist

San Diego Clinical Psychologist

I will be moving to San Diego soon. My boys aged 12 and 6 are in the autism spectrum. Both had their clinical diagnosis done when they were 4 and 3 years old respectively. Both diagnosis were done in Ontario, Canada. I am seeking help in navigating through San Diego autism services, will the diagnosis report we have be enough to get them an IEP for school? otherwise how do we get them an IEP? Any suggestion on clinical psychologist in San Diego area? Many thanks.

Although I'm fairly certain the throwing first is to make sure he's faster than me, he plans his moves, knows his best opportunity, will wait hours or days for his opportunity, child locks are a joke. And I spent 4… read more

Thank you! We are receiving early intervention, ST and OT, but not ABA yet. We just received the diagnosis but we did not expect to get level 3. Praying it will all be beneficial.
