Diagnostic Testing for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Services

Our licensed psychologists provide psychodiagnostic assessment to identify and diagnosis Autism Spectrum Disorder. This includes conditions such as that which was previously referred to as Asperger’s Disorder.

Every individual is unique, and each person presents with their own set of strengths and challenges. Our assessments are designed to identify each person’s unique strengths and challenges with the aim of coming up with an individualized treatment plan.

What is Involved in an Assessment?

Assessment involves meeting with a clinical psychologist and completion of questionnaires and tests. Testing is structured at a pace that is manageable, and breaks are provided as needed.

For child Autism assessments, we administer a test called the Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale (2nd edition). The ADOS-2 is a semistructured, standardized assessment of communication, social interaction, play, and restricted and repetitive behaviors.

For adult Autism assessments, we administer questionnaires designed to assess for Autism related symptoms and behaviours.

Upon completion of the assessment, a feedback session is held with the psychologist. In that session, the psychologist will provide information regarding diagnosis, test results, treatment planning, and available resources. You are welcome to ask any questions.

A report will be provided, which you can submit to schools, physicians, or other agencies to obtain any needed supports.

We are happy to assist you with obtaining any supports you need.
