What We Do:
Pathways Health Centre for Children partners with Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation for the delivery of local autism diagnostics in Lambton County.
For Pathways’ Autism Diagnostic Clinic, the physician at the clinic may be a local pediatrician or a visiting pediatrician from another community.
Referring children to the Autism Diagnostic Clinic:
- Pathways’ clinicians may discuss a referral with the legal guardian and seek the input of the child’s pediatrician or primary care practitioner, or
- A pediatrician or primary care practitioner can refer to the Autism Diagnostic Clinic by completing a Request for Service and emailing email@example.com. Pathways will connect with the legal guardian to discuss the referral.
Families will be offered an Autism Diagnostic Clinic appointment in order of the date their referral was received. Some pre-clinic paperwork and appointments may be required prior to confirming the Autism Diagnostic Clinic date.
