Adult autism assessment

Adult autism assessment

Dr Isobel Robb and her team provide high quality, fully comprehensive autism assessments. We specialise in providing assessments for adults and young people.

Assessment process

We provide a comprehensive and streamlined diagnostic assessment pathway for adults. Our adult autism assessments are usually split across two appointments. One of the appointments is with a clinical psychologist and one is with a highly specialist speech and language therapist. 

Adult autism assessments include:

  • Initial questionnaires for you to complete and preliminary information gathering, e.g. about family history and early history
  • Developmental history - areas of importance are covered in our background questionnaire
  • Primary school, secondary school and further education
  • Work history (when relevant)
  • Psychological and mental health history 
  • Adult autism traits - areas of importance are covered in our background questionnaire
  • Impact on life

Corroborative information needs to be considered as part of a thorough assessment, so involvement of a parental figure, school reports or other evidence is really helpful. We understand that adults may struggle to get this evidence and so we assess to the best of our ability without it. 

The assessment outcome will be provided as soon as possible via telephone or email, depending on your preference. 

 

Our comprehensive adult autism assessment will include:

 

A clinical interview

This will involve questions about your developmental history when you were a child and how you perceive your current presentation. You will also be asked to complete screening questionnaires.

 

ADOS assessment

This is a specialist "gold standard" diagnostic assessment, carried out with you to consider your presentation against autism diagnostic criteria.

 

Multidisciplinary clinical discussion

Once we have gathered the information we need, we will meet to evaluate and consider the outcome.

 

Comprehensive report and feedback

Detailed diagnostic report sent to you securely via email and feedback meeting to discuss the outcome and recommendations.
