Autism assessment is usually done in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of professionals. I am trained in providing a range of autism assessment services. I am currently able to offer ADOS-2 assessment and report to adults and older adolescents, typically ages 15+, who do not have any major difficulties with language. This assessment can be conducted by video conferencing or may be able to be conducted in your home.
Fees for the ADOS-2 assessment and report as of December 2022 are $700. Assessment in your home will incur additional travel fees to compensate for time and direct travel costs. There is not currently a Medicare rebate for autism assessment, however your health fund may provide a rebate. Non-attendance or cancellation with less than 48 hours notice for an ADOS-2 assessment incurs a $350 cancellation fee.
To access an ADOS-2 assessment with me, please contact me directly or book through Halaxy.
Please note that it is important that at least one step in the autism assessment be conducted in person. Typically, this is the developmental history, which can be undertaken by your existing psychologist. If you do not have a psychologist, or they are unable to do the developmental history, you can book an in person speech and language assessment with a speech pathologist. In that case, I can do the developmental history in a separate appointment to the ADOS-2.
