Standard Assessment | Cost £750 plus VAT

Diagnostic Assessment of Autistic Spectrum Condition

The aim of this assessment is to provide a definitive diagnostic opinion about the presence, or not, of an Autistic Spectrum Condition. The participant attends the clinic for a half day assessment session. It is extremely beneficial if the participant is accompanied by a parent so that the ADI-R assessment can be conducted at the same time.

Clinical tools used:

    • ADOS2 (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule)
    • ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised)

A report of the clinical findings will be written and presented to the participant (if they are adult) or the participant’s parent in the case of a child and a second copy of the report will be presented to the referring authority if that is appropriate.
