How an autism assessment works

Our multidisciplinary approach incorporates evidence-based practices to address the unique needs and challenges faced by adults with ASD, empowering them to lead fulfilling and meaningful lives.



Our initial screening process helps identify potential signs and symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). At our facility, we initiate the diagnostic process by conducting thorough screenings to identify potential signs and symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).


Information Gathering

Once potential indicators are identified, we embark on a comprehensive information-gathering phase. This involves obtaining detailed developmental history, behavioral observations, and functional assessments. Family members, caregivers, educators.


Multi-disciplinary assessment

Following the information-gathering phase, standardized assessments and clinical evaluations are administered to assess various domains related to autism diagnosis. These assessments may encompass areas such as social communication, repetitive behaviors, sensory sensitivities.


Diagnostic Report

Based on the comprehensive assessment findings, our team of professionals generates a detailed diagnostic report. This report outlines the individual’s strengths, challenges, and specific areas of concern related to ASD. It provides a clear summary of the assessment results, diagnostic impressions.



Following the diagnostic process, our commitment to support continues beyond diagnosis. We provide ongoing support and resources to assist individuals and their families in accessing appropriate interventions and services tailored to their unique needs.

Sensory Sensitivities

Autistic people tend to have either a higher or lower (hyper or hypo) threshold for their senses. Noises that neurotypical people wouldn’t even notice can be intensely annoying and aggravating. Being around lots of noise, like in a restaurant or on a busy street, can cause a level of stress that might feel unbearable. And once back home, that person may need time to calm down.In the same way, some autistic people find physical touch very unpleasant, even if it’s affectionate. Also, many struggle to find food with a taste or texture they like.These sensitivities can be very distressing for the individual and very difficult to understand for others but are often a fundamental part of being neurodiverse. Once understood, they can be adjusted for.

Problems with your mood

Compared to the general or neurotypical population, a significantly higher proportion of autistic people suffer with their mental health. Autism itself doesn’t cause mental health problems, but living in a world that isn’t designed for you can make life really difficult and exhausting. Over time, many suffer and might need support. Once a person can identify as autistic, it enables those offering support to better understand who they are working with and adapt their approach accordingly.

Being misunderstood at work

Not all workplaces understand neurodivergence well enough to make sure their environment supports autistic people. This may simply be because they don’t have the right information, but it can leave autistic people feeling de-skilled, disempowered and undervalued. Being able to formally identify as autistic can be very helpful at work. It means employers can start to think about what reasonable adjustments might be needed to help that person, so they can reach their potential and contribute fully.

Difficulties in relationships

Autistic people often find relationships difficult, as it’s not always possible to ‘tune-in’ to other people’s needs or have their own needs fully understood. Partners or friends can become frustrated and have expectations that are hard to meet when a person is neurodivergent. Autistic individuals can experience stress and low mood, and as you might expect, relationship difficulties can be a significant contributing factor.
