Adult autism assessment

Adult autism assessment

Dr Isobel Robb and her team provide high quality, fully comprehensive autism assessments. We specialise in neurodiveristy assessments for adults and young people (age 10+).

Assessment process

We offer a comprehensive and streamlined diagnostic assessment pathway for adults. Our adult autism assessments are usually split across two appointments with one of our clinical psychologists.

Adult autism assessments include:

  • Initial questionnaires for you to complete and preliminary information gathering, e.g. about family history and early history
  • Early developmental history
  • Primary school, secondary school and further education
  • Work history (when relevant)
  • Physical and mental health history 
  • Adult autism features 
  • Impact on life
  • Other neurodevelopmental conditions
  • Sensory sensitivities and attention to detail

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, our comprehensive written report and recommendations will be provided as soon as possible after the assessment. 

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.


"Gold standard" assessment tools

We use "gold standard" diagnostic assessment tools, 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 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.
