Diagnosis Process

The assessment clinic provides comprehensive, evidence- based assessments for children, young people and young adults who may be autistic. 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, which are conducted by clinical psychologists and speech pathologists, 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. This time includes report writing. Assessments can begin while you are waiting for an appointment with your child’s paediatrician.

Our transdisciplinary team – with multiple areas of expertise – are also available to start other assessments such as school funding assessments and reports. Please speak to reception or your therapy
team if you need further information.
