We are open and available to see patients, but you may experience delays at our ERs, hospitals, and clinics. We appreciate your patience. Access more info on COVID testing, vaccination, visitor policy, hospitalization data, and FAQs.

Adaptive Functioning

Assessing adaptive functioning or behaviors is vital to finding neurodevelopmental disorders. At St. Luke's, our experts evaluate and diagnose many conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Intellectual disability
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Language disorder

Adaptive behaviors cover a wide range of developmentally driven and age-appropriate skills in both social and practical needs. Evaluating how well your child is able to function helps us identify potential supports, treatment recommendations, diagnostics, and understanding of behaviors.
