Abstract

Long waits for diagnostic assessment prevent early identification of children suspected of having autism spectrum disorder. We evaluated the benefit of embedded diagnostic consultation within primary care clinics. Using a streamlined diagnostic model, 119 children with concerns for autism spectrum disorder were seen over 14 months. Diagnostic clarity was determined through streamlined assessment for 59% of the children, while others required follow-up. Latency from first concern to diagnosis was 55 days and median age at diagnosis was 32 months: considerably lower than national averages or comparable tertiary clinics. Findings support that embedded processes for effective triage and diagnosis within the medical home is a viable mechanism for efficient access to diagnostic services and assists in bypassing a common barrier to specialized services.
