Please note: Aspect’s waitlist for an autism assessment is currently less than 3 months. At this stage, we are taking names for the waitlist and notifying people if an earlier appointment becomes available.

Aspect Assessment Services

Our assessment services are delivered by Clinical Psychologists, Educational and Developmental Psychologists or Neuropsychologists, with experience and post-graduate training in the assessment and diagnosis of autism. We follow the “National Guidelines for the Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder”, and use standardised assessment tools such as the Monteiro Interview Guidelines for Diagnosing the Autism Spectrum, Second Edition (MIGDAS-2), the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule -– Second Edition (ADOS-2) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview -– Revised (ADI-R).

Getting a Diagnosis

We provide both adult and children autism diagnosis assessments for individuals across their lifespan. Our comprehensive assessment can identify developmental difficulties and determine what strategies and supports will assist a person to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.

The diagnostic assessment includes:

  • A comprehensive parent interview using the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R)
  • Formal observation using the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - Second Edition (ADOS 2)
  • Assessment of adaptive functioning (everyday living skills and independence)
  • Information from preschool or school staff
  • A feedback session outlining the assessment outcomes, including an opportunity for questioning and clarification
  • Recommendations for services that will best serve the individual needs of the person receiving the diagnosis
  • Comprehensive report within four to six weeks of the assessment date
