Diagnostics & Assessment

 

Assessment includes:

  • The Autism Diagnostic interview:  ADI-R – a very detailed parent interview
  • Individual Assessment for your child:
    – a cognitive assessment
    – a play based social communication assessment – ADOS-II  (Autism Diagnostic Observation schedule)
  • Detailed feedback and planning session with you as parents.
  • Detailed report and recommendations. (I would also  review any previous reports, you would wish me to see.)
  • When appropriate, academic evaluation and activities of daily living may also be assessed.
