ADHD & Autism Services
The thing with autism and ADHD is that it exists even if it doesn’t come with problems and draw backs and people only get diagnosed if something goes wrong. People are seeing themselves in social media and seeing themselves in other people’s diagnosis. The people who haven’t sought diagnosis are still impacted even if there’s no impairment, cos you feel like you’ve been on the wrong boat your whole life.
Getting diagnosis can alleviate stress and help you understand yourself and where you fit in, and to this end even a self-diagnosis can be a great starting point for seeking clarification. I'm here to help every step of the way.
SUPPORT SERVICES FOR NEURODIVERGENT PEOPLE
Screening Assessment Options
We provide a variety of screening and assessment support options to help you on your diagnosis journey and understand better your functional capacities.
You will complete a comprehensive demographic intake form and several clinical screening tools which reflect traits and experiences of neurodivergent adults.
The Functional Capacity Assessment can be utilised in a variety of scenarios to assist people with disability to access the support they need, for NDIS package reviews and to support your initial access applications.
The Autism/ADHD Screening Assessment provides an in-depth, person centred and neurodivergent affirming evaluation across multiple domains, which will give you information to inform your next steps and if you wish to pursue further assessment and formal diagnosis.
