Autism Spectrum Disorders/ Conditions ( ASD or ASC)

Full assessment- Children & Adults

To formally identify and diagnose Autism, we use the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) alongside a comprehensive evaluation which will include:

The Neuro Precision Autism assessment is a comprehensive package, designed to accurately diagnose Autism. The assessment is typically carried out by a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist / Clinical Psychologist and /or a Speech and Language Therapist.

The assessment involves all or some of the below:

  1. An in-depth clinical interview with parents or informant.  (lasting approximately 1 hour- 1.5 hours)
  2. Interview with school (teachers, SENCO) and classroom observation (where possible and if required) or telephone call with someone who knows the child in a school setting. If an adult, we interview other relevant people in your life to gain further information.
  3. A review of any medical reports
  4. An evaluation of:

o verbal and non-verbal skills (gestures and eye movement)

o use of non-literal language (metaphor, humour, irony)

o content, clarity and coherence of conversation

o social skills (understanding others and ability to react to verbal cues)

5. Analysis of questionnaires sent to you before the Autism appointment.

6. A review of any physical issues, executive functioning, emotional state, developmental history and  currant symptoms.

7.the ADOS (the gold standard assessment for ASD) which is done 1:1 with you or your child and filmed for double scoring purposes. This takes around 60 minutes. This is done in your home or online, by a ADOS trained therapist.

8. Multi-disciplinary team diagnostic meeting where all information that is gathered is discussed. This information is considered alongside the DSM-V diagnostic criteria  and used for conclusion.

9.A full report will be written following the assessment with recommendations for yourself/ school staff and families.

10.A telephone feedback is offered within the assessment package, which allows for questions to be asked and to discuss the outcome details.

Local Authority Guidance

Any Autism assessment carried out by NICE guidelines (National Institute for Clinical Excellence).  However, some local authorities prefer to carry out the Autism assessments themselves. Therefore, it is advisable for clients to contact their local health authority to discuss this prior to making a booking with us. The authority would need to know that the assessment is being conducted by one ADOS-trained professional and that it is being video recorded so that a second ADOS-trained therapist can verify the ‘coding’ (i.e. the scoring). The video footage would be available to the local authority should they need it.


The above is usually carried out in a day, and the full report usually takes 2 – 3 weeks to produce.
