What happens in an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnostic assessment?
A diagnostic assessment at Connect Psychology involves an assessment of all aspects of behaviour, development and history to determine whether an individual meets the current DSM-V criteria for a diagnosis of ASD or if there are any other alternative explanations for the individual’s behaviours and concerns.
Connect Psychology clinicians do this through structured interviews with parents, looking at questionnaire results, direct observation of behaviour, and standardised clinical assessment tools. Sometimes, observations at childcare/school are necessary.
