How do our assessments work?

The first step in the assessment journey is understanding more about your child, their developmental history, and behavioural patterns. A member of our diagnostic team will provide you, and your child’s education setting, with a questionnaire to help gather this information.

Once we have this background information, we will set up a time for our diagnostic team to meet with you and your child for a face-to-face assessment.

These assessments are comprised of two essential components:

• The first component is an assessment through interactive play, where we will observe and evaluate your child’s behaviours and responses.
• The second component is through conversations with you and your child’s other caregivers to gain deeper insights into your child’s developmental journey and family dynamics.

Following the assessment, our diagnostic clinicians will evaluate the results and meet with you to discuss whether your child meets the criteria for a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.






How do I book an assessment for my child?

To book your child in for an assessment, we will first need a referral from a health professional. This may be your child’s General Practitioner or therapist.

For a referral form, please contact our customer service team on 1800 953 001 or via email at [email protected]. Alternatively, please fill out the enquiry form below.
