Autism and ADHD Testing
ECHO Autism, a division of the University of Missouri’s Thompson Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders, is a virtual learning network of providers offering real-time access to autism and behavioral experts. This innovative system allows professionals and caregivers to increase their confidence in identifying and treating autism and expand their knowledge about treatments and solutions.
Susan Shuman, licensed psychologist at The CENTER, has provided autism testing since May 2018; and she is the first psychologist in Northwest Missouri to conduct autism testing. Shuman receives referrals from local pediatricians and school professionals to test children as young as age three for autism and associated disorders. According to the National Autism Association, autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder, yet most underfunded.
