Child Autism Assessment

We take pride in following the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for autism assessment. Our assessments are carried out by a minimum of two high specialist clinicians. We use 'gold standard' recommended assessment tools and work as a team to reach our conclusions.  We offer assessment from the age of 5 years. 

Our assessment process

Step 1: Parent only online initial consultation. Young people 13+ are invited to attend. 

Step 2: Parent only diagnostic interview. Young people 13+ are welcome to attend. 

Step 3: Your child attends an in person assessment (called the ADOS) in Wokingham (Berkshire), Wallingford (Oxfordshire) or North Clapham (London). Children aged 13 and over can also attend at our Southampton clinic.  

Step 4: Questionnaires are completed by your child's school/college and sometimes your child.  

Step 5: You and your child attend an online follow up appointment to discuss the outcome of the assessment. For younger children, you may wish to attend a parent only appointment and share the outcome  at a later date.*

After your child's assessment

You will receive a detailed report that includes your child's strengths, challenges and our recommendations. If a diagnosis if given, a shorter report to share with your child's school will be given. We can also offer post diagnostic parent support sessions.
