For Families

I’d like to get started with Canvas Dx for my child.

Early diagnosis and interventions can be life-changing.

The early childhood years are crucial to shaping your child’s future. Early diagnosis and interventions improve outcomes for children with autism and other developmental delays.

But determining if your child has a developmental delay or condition, such as autism, is a process that can take months or even years. The path to diagnosis can be long and confusing. You may feel uncertain, stuck, and alone. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Canvas Dx is a clear path forward you and your doctor can take when you have developmental concerns about your child.
