Diagnostic Assessment

Private autism assessment for adults throughout Scotland and the UK.

Autism Assessment for Adults (16+)

  • A collaborative approach is taken to the assessment where Anne Marie works with the person to find evidence across the lifespan that will support the diagnostic process.
  • Evidence is gathered through interview with the person being assessed.
  • Evidence of early childhood development is gathered from an individual who knew the person in early childhood, either through interview or questionnaire.
  • Assessment can still be completed for someone who does not have access to an early childhood informant.
  • Anne Marie recognises that many females with undiagnosed autism camouflage the extent of their true difficulties and that diagnostic decision making can be informed by the person’s thinking and not be based solely on demonstrable behaviours.

What to expect

  • The diagnostic assessment will be completed in one appointment typically lasting up to 6 hours.
