What is an Autism Assessment?
It might help to know that people seek out assessments for all kinds of reasons including facing long-term mental issues, discovering they're the parent of an autistic child and because they're on a long waiting list for a psychiatric diagnosis.
The full assessment fee is £750 and includes your screening tests, assessment, report and follow-up call. Please scroll down to check out regularly asked questions.
Research backs up what my clients tell me every day; receiving a diagnosis helps them accept who they are and is the first step in living happier, more fulfilled lives.
An assessment will tell you whether you have autism and what level of autism you have. Empirically tested diagnostic tools are used during the assessment process, including the ADOS-2 which is the gold standard for autism diagnosis.
All assessments are carried out by Claire Jack, Ph.D. who is an autistic woman, researcher, author and ADOS-2 Practitioner.
An assessment is different from a clinical diagnosis available from a Psychiatrist or Clinical Psychologist, which would include information about other conditions you might have. Many people choose an assessment over a full psychiatric diagnosis because they can do so without a referral, the wait times are shorter and it is a more affordable option. If you wish to use your assessment for support at work or in an educational establishment, please ensure the organisation is happy to recognise an autism assessment as opposed to a full clinical diagnosis.
