Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental condition that affects social interaction, communication, and often includes the presence of repetitive or restricted behaviors and interests. The term "spectrum" signifies that the symptoms and their severity can vary widely among adults with ASD. Some may have nuanced challenges in interpreting social cues and managing relationships, while others could face more pronounced difficulties. Cognitive and language abilities also range widely; some adults with autism possess average or even above-average intelligence and verbal skills. Autism spectrum disorders can manifest differently across individuals and between genders.

Obtaining a proper adult autism assessment is crucial for several reasons. An accurate diagnosis can provide a framework for understanding persistent challenges in social interaction, communication, and behavior, which may have been previously misattributed to other conditions or personality traits. A diagnosis opens the door to targeted interventions and therapies. It also allows for access to accommodations in educational and workplace settings, making it easier for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder to navigate social and professional landscapes. Additionally, a formal diagnosis can offer emotional relief and validation, helping individuals and their families make sense of lifelong difficulties and paving the way for a more tailored and effective support system.

Autism and ADHD Assessments uses the latest psychological and computational techniques to arrive at an accurate assessment. With clinical psychologists Australia-wide, we offer assessments and reports within 2-3 weeks.

Please note that government agencies in Australia, such as the NDIS or Centrelink, accept psychological reports from clinical psychologists only. We are a group of clinical psychologists endorsed by the Psychology Board of Australia. We offer assessments in a single day or distributed over several sessions. In Australia, private health rebates are available for our assessments (depending on the plan). There is no waiting list, so please email us today: info@autismassessments.com.au


The Process of the Assessment

Individual circumstances differ, but in principle, every psychological assessment has four parts: (1) a clinical interview to obtain information on current challenges and the personal as well as medical history, (2) a series of psychological questionnaires and tests, (3) the explanation of results and (4) a report. With written permission of the client, we also interview partners and caregivers, in addition to the review of previous assessments and records. As part of the assessment, and with the explicit permission of the client, we consult with other providers such as GPs, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, social workers and speech pathologists. It is important to note that an assessment does not only include the direct contact with the client, it also includes the scoring of tests, the interpretation of results, the review of documents and writing a report.

Autism and ADHD Assessments works with experienced, female clinical psychologists worldwide with an interest in Autism Spectrum Disorder in women. Historically, autism has been underdiagnosed in females. This may be because women have sensibly learned to compensate or cope with behaviours typically associated with autism and developed strategies to match expectations as part of socialisation. Autism and ADHD Assessments is using psychological tests designed to identify female autism which in turn facilitates access to resources and support systems.


Psychological Reports

Reports are available for you personally, the NDIS, Centrelink, employers and other third parties. A short report includes a description of the psychological tests, the individual results of the assessment as well as recommendations. Longer reports may include the full personal and medical history, a functional assessment and the results of a full range of cognitive tests. Report writing is supported by artificial intelligence, and hence, we can provide reports very fast.

Please note that Autism and ADHD Assessments is not able to offer crisis services. Therefore, if you or a loved one is thinking or talking about suicide then you will need to seek urgent medical attention or alternatively call a crisis service such as Lifeline on 13 11 14.

Our psychologists do their very best to serve clients in need. A scheduled appointment means that both the psychologist and the counselling room are available at the allocated time. In case of a late cancellation, however, it is nearly impossible to book another client into the same time slot. Hence, it is policy to charge 50% of the consultation fee for cancellations within 48 hours and 100% of the fee for cancellations within 24 hours (business days), same-day cancellations or a failure to attend a scheduled appointment.

Autism and ADHD Assessments reserves the right to refuse or terminate services where this seems appropriate. Autism and ADHD Assessments also reserves the right to move face-to-face consultations to online appointments when this is necessary (e.g. lockdowns). Please note that we do not consent to the recoding of online sessions.

For all psychological services, payment must be made prior to the consultation or delivery of a report.

In Queensland, a specialised medical practitioner, for instance a paediatrician or psychiatrist, must sign the documents for funding to be approved for a child. The Autism and ADHD Assessments conducts psychological assessments and we collaborate with universities across Australia to develop new, accurate techniques for the diagnosis of a range of mental health disorders. Nevertheless, in order to obtain school funding, it is necessary to see a medical specialist.

Please note that the costs for assessments may vary based on individual circumstances. By making an appointment/payment or using any of the resources of the Autism and ADHD Assessments, you agree to the policies as outlined above, including the Cancellation and Privacy Policies, the Terms of Use as well as all Disclaimers.
