The assessment clinic provides comprehensive, evidence based assessments to identify autism in children and young people. Your child’s paediatrician or psychiatrist may refer your child to the assessment clinic if delays in the areas of social communication, play or behaviour indicate a possible autism diagnosis.
The assessments are conducted by Irabina’s psychologists and speech pathologists who have a focus on Autism. Our assessments are designed to confirm or exclude an Autism diagnosis and identify any other possible neurodevelopmental conditions. A diagnostic assessment takes approximately six hours, which occurs on several days over a period of four to six weeks and includes report writing.
Our transdisciplinary team is able to complete other assessments such as school funding assessments and reports. Please speak to reception or your therapy team if you need further information.
