Assessment

Autism Assessment 

Assessment for Autism can be complicated and very lengthy; we are here to make this process simple and easy.

We assess for all forms of Autism including classic childhood Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Condition, High Functioning Autism and Autism in girls.​
Using standardised assessment tools, we assess your child and provide you with comprehensive reports and suggest strategies, suiting the needs of your child. Additionally when requested, we are able to provide a profile of your child such as that of pathological demand avoidant 

The assessment of Autism includes:

  • A detailed history of the child’s development and presentation

  • Medical Examination 

  • Observation/ Information from more than one setting such as educational setting if applicable or information from other professionals involved is helpful

  • Blood tests and Investigations are not routinely indicated but  may be necessary depending on individual presentation

  • Use of Autism Specific tools where necessary

​​There are a number of Autism specific tools that can be used for assessment. These include but are not limited to:

  • ADOS-2

  • ADI-R

  • 3Di

During the assessment if any other needs become apparent then we would recommend further condition specific assessment
