Autism Assessments

We are able to complete one part or a multi disciplinary assessment for autism.  With a referral from your Paediatrician you can see a psychologist, speech pathologist and/or an occupational therapist for an assessment.

For a psychology assessment we will need 4 sessions:

A cognitive assessment – IQ test to determine the child’s cognitive profile (WPPSI-IV or WISC-V). The WISC-V is administered on the iPad.

A full developmental history (Autism Diagnostic Interview ADI-R)

A play and interaction assessment (Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale ADOS-II)

A report and feedback session

 

For a speech pathology assessment we will:

A full speech and language assessment (CELF-IV)

A play and interaction assessment (Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale ADOS-II)
