Austism Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment
An Autism Assesment can confirm or exclude the presence of an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and determine a child’s support needs.
No two children (or adults) with autism are the same, but what is common are difficulties with communication, social interaction, imagination and play.
There are many benefits to early intervention for children with autism.
- Comprehensive Autism Assessments
- Assessment of Developmental Delay
- Early Intervention Planning
- Ongoing treatment
- Parenting strategies for managing challenging behavior
When to consider an ASD Assessment:
If you are concerned about your child’s:
- Play or communication
- Emotions or behaviours
- Responses to noise, touch, smells or taste
- Intense interests
- Repetitive movements or behaviours
What’s involved in an ASD Assessment?
We have an initial consultation with parents and the child to get background details and understand concerns. This is followed by a series of interviews, observations and behavioural, cognitive and functional assessments. A comprehensive report and feedback for schools or NDIS applications can be arranged if required.
