Diagnostic & Assessment Services

The Autism Diagnostic Team (ADT) provides assessment of children aged 0-5 years, and 6-18 years, who are suspected to have an Autism Spectrum Disorder, in order to confirm or disconfirm the diagnosis. The assessment consists of intelligence testing, adaptive skills, as well as the severity/presence of autism symptoms.

This is a psychological service typically conducted by a Psychometrist under the supervision of a Clinical Psychologist. Community based Speech-Language Pathologists and Pediatricians collaborate as part of the team.
