Wheeler’s autism diagnostic evaluation services are now available at our convenient locations at 91 Northwest Drive, Plainville, and 20 Tuttle Place, Middletown, for Medicaid-enrolled families.

Wheeler has extensive experience assessing the needs of children and young adults who demonstrate autism spectrum challenges. We have developed a multidisciplinary autism spectrum diagnostic evaluation and assessment program, specifically designed for children ages 2 and older.
