The Stewart Center at The Westview School is a full-service psychology clinic staffed by highly-experienced professionals with specialized training in autism spectrum disorder.

You do not have to be a student at The Westview School to receive services at The Stewart Center.
Why The Stewart Center?
The staff at the Stewart Center are sensitive to the needs of children with autism spectrum disorder and their families. They are very familiar with the ways autism spectrum disorder can introduce unique challenges for students as learners. The Stewart Center offers assessments with minimal wait lists and reasonable costs for comprehensive reports. These reports include summaries of all testing performed, interpretation of results, and recommendations for continued success in school and in life.
Does my child need an assessment?
As students grow and change, so do their needs. To be sure that intervention plans address these needs, the public school system, as well as nearly all private schools, require students with special needs to have “current” evaluations updated every three years. Psychological-Educational assessments help in developing appropriate educational objectives, modifications and supports to help the student achieve those objectives. Further, some students may have academic, behavioral or developmental problems that have not been fully identified. The Stewart Center offers developmental and psychological evaluations that can determine whether a student has a previously undiagnosed problem such as autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, depression, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder or a learning disability that could be affecting their functioning.
