Autism Assessment in Oxford

We recognise that Autism often co-exists with ADHD and offer autism assessments in Oxford, within our Centre, for both children and adults.

People with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) typically have difficulties with communication, relationships and social interaction. There are also often other challenges like learning difficulties, emotional and behavioural problems, sleep difficulties and sensory sensitivities. People with ASD also typically have very fixed ideas and interests and literal thinking, which can cause additional difficulties in their lives.

We offer two assessments for children – an ADOS autism assessment and specialist developmental interview, and a fully comprehensive neurodevelopmental assessment which looks for autism as well as any co-existing conditions, including ADHD. All of our autism assessments include a full cognitive assessment to look for any learning difficulties that may not have been previously identified, including specific difficulties that sometimes are present with ASD.

Our adult autism assessment is in two parts and looks at both childhood and adult symptoms by gathering as much information as possible from relatives or friends who knew the person as a child. It also involves a comprehensive assessment with the adult, carried out by our specialist Psychiatrist.
