What We Do
Autism Diagnostic Evaluations
Board certification in their area of specialty means our doctors have demonstrated the highest levels of competence in their field.
It hurts to want to help your child, but not know how. We can help. We are here to help you understand your child, so that you can better help them.
It is our responsibility to advocate for your child, and do what we can to help them reach their greatest potential.
Our goal is to provide practical information to families, clinicians, and educators. We initially communicate our findings through face-to-face feedback sessions, and then provide a comprehensive and targeted written report to be used long after the assessment is complete.
“I truly believe you are a light in the shadow of most doctors.”
“Hi Dr Jill…. “Jane” got accepted into school today for the fall. I have never felt such relief in my entire life!! Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. We are fully aware that it would have gone in a totally different direction without your intervention. Saying thank you doesn’t seem to cover it, but I do hope you know how deeply we mean it and how much you have made a difference in our child’s life. She has so much more to conquer but because of you and your intervention she has the CHANCE, the HOPE and in situations like ours, that is EVERYTHING! Please keep doing what you do, it is invaluable.”
“You cleared our minds of 10 years of questions, concerns and worries. Your evaluation, expertise and personable care were at the highest level of professionalism. With your diagnosis we feel that we finally are at the right starting point.”
“Dr. Kelderman, thank you sooooo much for all you’ve done and continue to do for my child. Words cannot express my gratitude and gratefulness for you. So, THANK YOU will have to suffice.”
“Words cannot express how much your time, generosity and thoughtfulness mean to me. The family of “John” will finally have a roadmap to help them on their journey.”
“Dear Dr. Panora, Words cannot express what a blessing you are to “Jack,” “Mike,” and I (and sweet “Lucy”, of course). I include “Lucy” because a lot of my time and mental energy was focused on “Jack”. Thank you so much for your explicit evaluation and sincere demeanor. You made such a difference for “Jack.””
“We received the full evaluation in the mail this week. Thank you! You did such a beautiful job, and we are grateful.”
“Dear Dr. Panora, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help, time, concern, and generosity. Even knowing how to thank you or what to say in a letter to you has been hard…I can’t accurately convey the depth of gratitude I feel for what you’ve given us.”
“You have been so incredibly helpful, and I’m especially thankful to know what we’re actually dealing with as her behaviors have continued to strengthen. It is such a GIFT to know for sure that we are on the right treatment path now, and we can pour ourselves into what we know are the next steps. Just knowing that we are on the right path helps me find peace and sleep better at night.”
“I first want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for what you have done for us. This report and these diagnoses are not only life changing, but have finally given [my wife and I] the tools needed to ensure [our son] is successful in life. Thank you for taking the time to listen to us and thank you for the amazing, very detailed report. For the first time, [we] finally feel like we have a complete picture into what makes [our son] so amazing and so special and this is all thanks to you and your amazing coworkers and staff.
I also wanted to pass along that the school psychologist informed our ESE contact that the submitted report is “the most detailed and comprehensive report that she has ever read.” To that point, there is very little the school will have to do in order to update [our son’s] eligibility for these updated diagnoses. This is truly significant and will go a very long way in ensuring we get [our son] everything he needs. Again, thank you so very much.”
