Autism Assessments for Adults and Children
Welcome to Makewell Health and Wellness Clinic, your trusted destination for comprehensive Autism Assessments for adults and children in Milton Keynes.
Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals specializes in diagnosing and supporting individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). So, we are committed to providing accurate assessments and personalized treatment plans that cater to the unique needs of each individual.
What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental condition that affects social interaction, communication, and behaviour. It is typically diagnosed in early childhood, but many individuals may go undiagnosed until adulthood. And so, Makewell Health and Wellness Clinic offers specialized assessments to identify autism in both children and adults.
What Does it Entail?
Our Autism Assessments for adults and children include a variety of components:
Thorough Medical and Developmental History:
This includes information about their early development, milestones, and any concerns or challenges experienced throughout their life.
Clinical Observation and Behavioral Assessments:
Our experienced professionals conduct clinical observations and behavioral assessments to assess social interaction, communication skills, and repetitive behaviors that are indicative of autism.
Standardized Screening Tools:
We utilize standardized screening tools that are specifically designed to assess autism spectrum disorder.
Collaboration with Parents, Caregivers, and School:
We understand the importance of gathering input from parents, caregivers, and school professionals. And collaboration and communication with these individuals provide valuable insights.
What To Expect
This assessment may give the patient a confirmed diagnosis and a personalised care plan or signposting for ongoing support. Also, you will receive a full report of your assessment and the outcome. Additionally, if necessary our clinicians are able to prescribe medication for anxiety. And lastly, we use the ADOS assessment tool, alongside a detailed developmental history. So your appointment may be in two parts and at least two clinicians will be involved with the assessment.
-We will need to gather information from school and parents (if a child) and directly from the patient if an adult.
-The assessment may take place over two appointments.
– Medication may be prescribed based on the initial assessment and may incur an additional charge. There is no obligation to buy.
– We may recommend an ongoing medication review to monitor your progress.
– A clinician should contact you within 10 days to give you the outcome of your assessment.
– Your formal report can take up to 8 weeks post assessment.
