Autism Diagnosic Assessment

The assessment will start with an initial consultation, which is an opportunity to ascertain if a full diagnostic assessment is required. Following this, a full developmental history will be gathered and a clinical observation will be carried out using the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule. Information will be gathered from school or work and if needed a further observation of the client will be carried out in a non-clinical setting (e.g. school or work). Following the assessment, you will be provided with a report of the findings and a set to recommendations to help manage difficulties associated with ASD.  We can then discuss any next steps.

The process and fees differ depending on whether the assessment is for a child or an adult. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss this
