Autism Assessment Package
Our Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) assessments have been developed using best-practice guidelines for assessing ASD. Our assessment package includes an in-depth clinical interview, validated psychometric measures for assessing for ASD, and a comprehensive psychological report. The comprehensive report includes a detailed overview of symptoms, a thorough description of test results, interpretation of assessment and practical, evidence-based recommendations for next steps.
Some common symptoms of ASD which may indicate that an assessment could be useful include:
- Failure to initiate or respond to social interactions including back-and-forth conversation
- Difficulties in developing or maintaining friendships
- Reduced emotions or affect
- Repetitive motor movements or use of objects
- Insistence on routine and sameness
- Highly restricted interests
- Hyper- or hypoactivity to sensory input or unusual interest in sensory aspects
