From our Tipperary clinic, PALS provides autism assessments in Ireland. Our services extend to autism assessments for children and autism assessments for adults. For children, a formal autism diagnosis allows the child access to certain services. During the assessment, PALS uses various diagnostic tools, including:
The ADOS This is a semi-observational assessment that evaluates behaviour and social observation.
ASD Diagnostic Interview
This interview assessment is used when ASD hasn't been ruled out. This interview can be conducted in our clinic or through Zoom. The child's parent/guardian speaks with educational psychologist Jason Greenford.
For additional information on the diagnostic tools used during an autism assessment, get in contact with PALS today.
Our multi-disciplinary team completes all ASD diagnoses. PALS uses the ADOS-2 and the 3di as a part of our assessment battery. Our assessments follow the DM-5 criteria to ensure acceptance by the HSE and Department of Education.
For children under 6, we take a holistic approach to diagnosis. We consider multiple diagnoses to ensure children are diagnosed correctly.
