Our diagnostic assessments are carried out over a full day and can be completed remotely or within our Sloane Square clinic.
The assessment is broken into 3 parts:
- Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – 2 (ADOS-2), completed with the young person.
- Adapted Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI-R), completed with parents/carers.
- Feedback on Diagnostic Conclusion, completed with parents/carers and young person as appropriate.
Following conclusion of the assessment, a detailed report is provided, breaking down the findings which led to the diagnostic conclusion. If a conclusion cannot be made and additional observations are required e.g., within an education setting, then this will be discussed at this time.
We also work alongside paediatricians who have completed general developmental assessments and ADI-R by completing the ADOS portion of the assessment to enable a diagnostic conclusion.
In addition we have a growing post diagnostic service. At present there is a new Anxiety Management intervention service developed and lead by our assistant psychologists which can be access remotely or in clinic.
