Multi-Disciplinary Gold Standard Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Team Assessment
This assessment takes place over 2 phases.
Phase 1 involves a comprehensive psychological assessment, examining Educational, Behavioural, Emotional and Social Profiles and also including Gold Standard ASD diagnostic tools (the ADOS-2 observation and the 3di parental interview) administered by trained psychologists. If this phase rules out ASD, then phase 2 will not be required and a report will be submitted.
Phase 2 will only take place when phase 1 has not ruled out ASD. Clients will be referred to PALS Consultant Senior Speech and Language Therapist based in Killaloe, to incorporate a multi-disciplinary perspective into the assessment findings.
