Autism Assessment for Children & Young People

The Invertay Practice: Comprehensive Multi-disciplinary Autism Assessments

About Our Service For Children

Autism Assessments for Children & Young People

At The Invertay Practice, we specialize in undertaking multi-disciplinary Autism assessments children and young people. Employing gold-standard diagnostic tools like ADOS, our expert clinicians ensure that each assessment epitomizes excellence. Engaging in multiple sessions, either in-person or digitally, our approach is thorough and aims to comprehend the complete profile of the child or young person, covering their developmental, educational, and family history. Collaboratively involving parents/carers, the child or young person, and schools/colleges where applicable, we ensure a 360-degree evaluation.

Post-assessment, we conduct a feedback session to share our thoughts and summarise the outcome of the assessment, forward plan, and address any queries. A comprehensive written report is then provided, detailing the assessment procedure, findings, strengths, challenges, and recommended interventions.

Please note: We do not accept referrals for adolescents with learning disabilities, psychotic illnesses, or who are currently at high risk of harming themselves or others.

Educational Assessments 

The Invertay Practice offers bespoke educational assessments for children starting from the age of 5. Tailored to suit the unique needs of every child or adolescent, these evaluations can range from a broad assessment of cognitive abilities to specific areas like literacy challenges. We delve into emotional/social, cognitive, academic, communication, physical/sensory, and environmental dimensions that impact learning, involving all stakeholders in the process.

Upon culmination of the assessment, a detailed report is shared with the family/adolescent, highlighting strengths, areas for improvement, and suggesting educational supports. An optional feedback session can also be arranged for a thorough understanding of the findings.
