Adult Autism Assessments Kogarah

Adult autism diagnosis

As an adult, confirming a diagnosis of autism can be a complex and challenging process. Many individuals who may have autism may have gone undiagnosed throughout their childhood, and as a result, may have developed coping mechanisms to mask their autistic traits.

 

If you are an adult who is struggling with communication difficulties, socialising, sensory processing or repetitive behaviours, you may be wondering if these traits could be related to autism.

 

We offer adult autism assessments that can help provide clarity and support for those seeking to understand their neurodiversity better.

What does an adult autism assessment involve?

What your assessment will include

  • Intake information: This will be collected after your booking is confirmed.

  • Assessment interview: This includes a full history and can take 60-90 minutes. 

  • Testing session: A unique battery of several psychometric assessments and questionnaires, depending on the information gathered in the assessment interview. This usually takes 2-3 hours.

  • Comprehensive report: Your assessments will be scored and consulted on, and a report will be produced. A diagnosis will be ruled in or out, and your report will include several practical recommendations to take away with you. This report will be produced within 4 weeks of your testing session.

  • Feedback session: After receipt of your report we will schedule a 30 minute feedback session to provide a summary and answer any questions you may have. 

What is not included
 

  • Therapy: If you receive a diagnosis and would like to explore additional supports such as psychological or occupational therapy, we can help direct you to several sources. However please note that therapy is not included in the assessment cost.

  • Alternative or co-morbid diagnoses: While your report may provide commentary regarding other possible diagnoses, the report's exclusive purpose is to rule in or out an autism diagnosis. We may suggest you explore other possible assessment as part of our recommendations. 

  • Guarantees: We pride ourselves on conductive comprehensive and ethical assessments that produce sound and reliable results. For this reason, we cannot guarantee a diagnosis. Sometimes a report may be inconclusive or require further investigation/s. Sometimes a diagnosis will be ruled out, and the rationale for this will be explained.
