Smart Talk Speech Pathology and Excelsis Psychology work together to provide diagnostic assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Our multidisciplinary team including Clinical Psychologists and Speech Pathologists are involved in the assessment process. The assessment involves a clinical interview with parents, in-depth analysis of your child’s developmental history and milestones, teacher or day-care interviews and classroom observations, and individual assessment of your child.
As part of your child’s individual assessment both the CELF and ADOS is completed. The CELF is a standardised of expressive and receive language and the ADOS is semi-structured, standardised assessment of Communication, Social interaction, Play and restricted and repetitive behaviours.
Assessment findings and recommendations are presented in a comprehensive assessment report which is sent to your child’s Paediatrician to review for formal diagnosis.
