The Autism Association of Western Australia in partnership with the University of Western Australia are collaborating to provide a comprehensive Autism diagnostic service for children aged 2 to 12 years. Our clinic is able to provide an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to Autism Assessments and Diagnosis.
Through our assessment clinic, we aim to provide:
These are based on best evidence-based practice. (Assessments used include Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, speech and language assessments, paediatric assessment and cognitive (IQ) screening based on the individual need of each child.)
Instead of multiple appointments, families can access all diagnostic services in one appointment through our specialist team of:
- Consultant paediatrician.
- Senior speech pathologist.
- Senior clinical psychologist.
For families who have already have a comprehensive Paediatric referral, our Speech Pathologist and Clinical Psychologist can complete diagnostic assessment in one appointment.
A feedback appointment within two weeks of assessment, and access as soon as possible to early intervention funding and services.
Provided for families to understand the process, the diagnosis, and to link into funding, therapy services and local community support.
We aim to keep costs for families to a minimum by reducing the time between assessments, and having all clinicians present in one appointment.
