About Us

Our mission is to establish a world-class virtual clinic that dramatically increases access to early autism diagnostic services.

Our vision is of a world where every family has the tools they need to help their children flourish.

Our Values

As You Are is a team of physicians who specialize in guiding families along their neurodevelopmental journey. We equip parents with the knowledge they need to help their children flourish.

Few things are as crucial as early and accurate diagnosis for children with autism because it unlocks therapeutic options at a time when they are most effective. Our platform gets families an appointment fast, reducing the time-to-an answer so your child can start building new skills.

At the core of the As You Are experience are our physicians, who are specially trained to diagnose autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. We also work collaboratively with your family to create an individualized care plan that you feel great about. Best of all, appointments are entirely virtual so your child doesn’t have to leave the comfort of their own home to go to a doctor’s office.

As a part of the autism journey, families in our program can receive intimate support from a Care Sidekick to help them navigate accessing services after a diagnosis. We understand the many pathways available and work with families to help make sure they get what they need, when they need it. *Care Coordination resources may vary by state and based on the child’s health insurance plan.

As a company, we are deeply committed to maximizing every young person’s unique gifts. We have seen over and over again how children with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders can not only live in the same world as the rest of us, but change it for the better. We bring that perspective to our practice every day.

Our Team

With As You Are, you’ll meet with a dedicated physician right from the start, helping you get seen and have a diagnosis sooner. We know that early diagnosis is crucial to helping your child thrive in their development.

Our Clinical Advisory Board plays an important part in how we’ve designed As You Are. This partnership allows us to ensure we are considering all the options, perspectives, possibilities and outcomes that could affect the services we provide to our families.

Kayla Wagner

Chief Executive Officer

Kayla Wagner is the CEO of As You Are, a world-class virtual clinic that dramatically increases access to virtual evaluations for children suspected to have autism. Kayla, a clinician and researcher, has dedicated her career to creating healthcare solutions that remove barriers and deliberately increase early identification of childhood disorders by increasing access to high quality care for all children, regardless of resources or socioeconomic status. During the pandemic, Kayla saw there was a huge need to reduce the average wait time for an autism diagnosis in the United States. In August 2022, she launched As You Are, which is available to anyone, anywhere. All children are welcome and every child’s individual abilities are recognized and valued as part of this diagnostic model.
