Seeking an Autism Diagnosis
Accessing the employment supports for autistic adults provided by the Frist Center for Autism and Innovation may be easier if you have a formal diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. And in some cases, adults with an existing diagnosis may need a recent report signed by a licensed and certified professional.
The reasons to pursue a formal diagnosis include personal validation, workplace accommodation, access to government resources, improvement of relationships, and much more. This TennesseeWorks blog post by Frist Center Associate Director Dave Caudel delves more into why you might decide to look for a formal diagnosis!
The Frist Center is currently exploring options for formal diagnostic services to which we can refer individuals seeking a diagnosis. Please check back here for additional information as it becomes available.
