Does anyone have any good recommendations for excellent Autism Spectrum Pediatritians or Psycologist in Virginia Beach, VA?

We currently live in Virginia Beach. VA. I have two children who fall under the Autism Spectrum. One also has a LD and ADHD. The office where we have been getting treatment is letting a lot slip through the cracks. I'd really like to find some more reliable treatment and consistant services for my children! And referals for help is appriciated!

  • Thank you for the info! I haven't contacted DAN yet. I will do that now. Neither of the kids have any other medical issues. The oldest has Aspergers, ADHD, and Dysgraphia. The youngest has High Functioning Autism. The youngest is in Speech and Occupational Therapy, but we're really needing a Doctor who provides more than just medication. Any information is greatly appriciated!
