Adult Combined Assessment
(Autism & ADHD)
Assessing for Autism and ADHD
Navigating the intricacies of neurodiversity as an adult can be a challenging journey, especially when you suspect that you might be experiencing the sometimes conflicting combination of both ADHD and Autism. You may have noticed that your struggles with focus and organisation are impacted by sensory or other self-regulatory needs. You might also relate to individuals discussing their experiences with Autism, recognising the overlap with your own.
If you're wondering whether your challenges encompass both ADHD and Autism, a combined assessment can provide you with the clarity and understanding you seek.
Diagnosing both ADHD and Autism in adulthood requires a specialised approach that considers the unique ways these conditions manifest in grown individuals. Over the years, you may have developed intricate coping mechanisms to manage your symptoms, making it even more crucial to undergo a comprehensive assessment.
Our experienced practitioners are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to examine your history, gather information from various sources, and provide you with a thorough evaluation. If you find that the combination of ADHD and Autism traits is impacting your daily life and well-being, it may be time to explore the possibility of a combined assessment to better understand your neurodiversity.
