DR. CATHERINE O’KELLY AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER ASSESSMENT
I provide a comprehensive diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder for adults who are experiencing difficulties with aspects of their lives. The process entails an in-depth background interview followed by an ASD-specific diagnostic tool and intellectual ability measure with the adult seeking diagnosis.
WHY SEEK A DIAGNOSIS?
Deciding to seek a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder can be a complex process. Finding the right time to approach this issue is a very personal decision. It is important to think about what getting, or not getting a diagnosis will mean for you. It can be helpful for some people to talk to a friend or family member, for other people, talking to a professional may be helpful.
