Autism diagnosis process

Irabina’s wrap around support begins with that first step, assessment.

Irabina provides psychology and speech pathology at our assessment clinic for initial autism diagnosis.  Our evaluations help to determine whether or not children meet criteria for autism, using the highest standard of care in diagnostic assessment. In addition to determining a diagnosis, the evaluation process helps to identify a child’s specific strengths and weaknesses and guides appropriate recommendations for treatment and intervention.

If you have concerns about your child’s development please make an appointment for an assessment. You do not require a referral from a Paediatrician or General Practitioner (GP) to attend Irabina. Having a referral, however, does entitle you to a Medicare rebate which assists with the costs of the assessment.

It doesn’t matter if you are awaiting an appointment with your child’s Paediatrician, we can commence the diagnostic process.

We use a range of tools for an Autism diagnosis which will be confirmed or ruled out

  • Paediatrician and;

  • Psychologist and;

  • Speech pathologist

In addition to our diagnostic and assessment clinic, Irabina offers a range of assessments to evaluate your child’s progress, and to support your child’s application for school funding, if applicable.
