Adult Autism Assessment

Adult Autism Assessment

Adult autism assessment

Through my clinical experience, I have observed that more and more of my adult ADHD clients present with autistic traits.

The research is inconsistent regarding the statistics; however, it is estimated that up to 70% of ADHDers meet the criteria for Autism diagnosis.

We currently offer a few autism assessment options:

  • 3 individual sessions: 2 assessment sessions and 1 feedback session (no report) -$1000 (some Medicare rebate might be available)
  • 3 individual seasons (2 assessment sessions and 1 feedback session) + short 1-page report – $1250
  • 3 individual sessions (2 assessments sessions and 1 feedback session) + full report -$1600

We also provide combined ADHD and autism assessment:

  • 4 individual sessions ( no report ) $1300
  • 4 individual sessions + short report $1600
  • 4 individual sessions + full report $2000

Why should I get assessed?

  • There is no medication for autism; most treatment focuses on addressing individual needs
  • Following a diagnosis, most people report relief and reduction of anxiety symptoms
  • You might be eligible to access NDIS
  • Keep in mind that having an autism or ADHD diagnosis might affect your eligibility for certain jobs or visas

Should I get a report?

The report would only be needed if you apply for NDIS or other support organisations. If you are getting assessed for personal reasons ( better self-awareness), then it might not be necessary.

If your University or your employer require more information, a simple letter might be sufficient.
