Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Assessments

Autism Spectrum Disorder Assessments are conducted when there is concern that an individual may exhibit developmental differences consistent with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD is a common and complex neurodevelopmental disorder with considerable variation in symptoms. The term "spectrum" refers to a continuum of severity or developmental impairment. Although individuals with ASD have developmental differences in communication and social functioning, and behavioural characteristics in common, the spectrum includes a wide range of clinical presentations, with individual differences in a variety of areas, such as: number and types of symptoms, severity (from mild to severe), age at diagnosis, levels of intellectual functioning, language abilities, and challenges with social interaction and communication.

What do we do and what does the assessment consist of?

We offer different testing options specific to ASD, depending on age of the individual and areas of challenge:

Once strengths and needs are identified (including relevant diagnoses), we work to inform, educate, advocate for appropriate supports and interventions for the individual and their family.

We pride ourselves on the quality and comprehensiveness of our assessments and reports.

Following assessment, we offer a range of treatment options for individuals and families with ASD.
