Assessment for ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)
A positive diagnosis of ASD can be life-changing. At The Long Gallery our psychologists endeavour to get it right by using the best tests available. Our primary instruments include the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – 2nd Edition (ADOS-II), and the Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised (ADI-R).
“The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised (ADI-R) are considered to be the ‘gold standard’ in diagnostic evaluations for autism.” Clinical child psychology and psychiatry, 2008; Jan; 13(1); 81-94.
These instruments are often validated by reference to other tests such as the Affect Recognition and Theory of Mind subtests of the NEPSY-II, and questionnaires such as the Social Responsiveness Scale -2nd Edition, and the Autism Spectrum Rating Scale. Information obtained from this wide range of tests provides the most accurate diagnosis, but also points at specific areas for remediation.
