Autism Assessment for Children.
Autism Assessment for Children with Autism Bristol
We understand that families are the first ones to notice that something is different with their child’s development. This can be a difficult, stressful time as you attempt to recruit help and need to know what is happening.
We are able to offer assessment for the diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Conditions in children and young adults.
We work as a multidisciplinary team, combining either a Clinical Psychologist and Speech and Language Therapist or a Clinical Psychologist and Occupational Therapist.
We use the:
- Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS)
- Autism Diagnostics Interview – Revised (ADI-R)
- Interviews of key family members
Observations within the home/school/community as appropriate
Additional Assessments offered by Autism Bristol
Additional assessments that may be used:
- Language assessments
- Social Skills assessments
- Sensory Processing assessments
- Cognitive assessments
This is to obtain a holistic picture of your child’s functioning and their strengths and challenges.
We use the DSM-V and / or ICD-!11 diagnostic criteria to confirm a diagnosis. Please be aware that your child may not meet the criteria for a diagnosis of Autism. If that is the case, we will explain why and look at other alternatives with you.
The approximate cost for this service is £2000.00.
