Initial Diagnosis

Getting an accurate and thorough diagnosis is crucial for identifying and addressing specific needs.

A diagnostic assessment for Autism will typically cost in the region of £2500 (see here for our framework of costs). The main assessment takes place at our offices in Boston Spa but, depending on location, we may use an alternative place.

The main part of the assessment includes a detailed face-to-face interview and a direct behavioural observation of the child in the clinic using the NICE recommended ADOS 2 assessment.

The interview takes between two to three hours and is normally carried out with one or both parents, although where relevant it can be with someone else who is familiar with the child’s history and current circumstances. The child need not be present for the interview, but must be available for the direct behavioural observation. The observation of the child takes about two hours. It involves a short play session (for younger or non-verbal children), a conversation-based and combined play session for older and/or more verbal children and usually an observation at school (within a structured and non-structured environment) for secondary-aged children. We will also ask nursery/teaching staff to complete a questionnaire to provide a short summary of the child’s behaviours and achievements in school.

Evaluating communication skills is an important part of the diagnostic process. Our speech and language therapists will also carry out a comprehensive speech and language assessment using a range of different assessment tools designed to profile different aspects of communication, including language comprehension, use of grammar and syntax, vocabulary, speech intelligibility, non-verbal communication and social interaction.

Once the assessments have been completed and we have all the information we need, we will provide a detailed, comprehensive report on the child or young person’s diagnosis, a description of their skills and areas for development together with recommendations, advice and resources.
