Adult 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 highly specialist clinicians.
We use 'gold standard' recommended assessment tools and work as a team to reach our conclusions.
We offer online or in person assessments.
Our assessment process
Step 1: You attend an online initial consultation.
Step 2: You attend a more detailed diagnostic interview (either online, in Southampton or Wokingham)
Step 3: You attend an assessment called the ADOS (either online, in Southampton, North Clapham or Wokingham).
Step 4: You complete some questionnaires.
Step 5: We discuss all of the information that we have gathered and review any reports you have shared (e.g. school reports or mental health reports).
Step 6: You attend an online follow up appointment to discuss the outcome of the assessment.
After your assessment
You will receive a detailed report that includes your strengths, challenges and our recommendations. If a diagnosis if given, we will also provide a shorter report for you to share with employers and education settings. We can recommend therapists, coaches and other psychologists who can work with your psychological needs and post-diagnosis adjustment, if this would be helpful.
