Adult Autism Assessment

Autism Assessment (people age 16+)

Do you think you may be autistic? Have you often felt different to other people and struggled to “fit in”, but have not understood why? Do you often feel exhausted and overwhelmed in some situations? Perhaps from a young age you have used strategies to try to disguise or "mask" your social / communication difficulties? It may be that autism could help you understand your struggles as well as highlight your strengths. 

Dr Isobel Robb and her team use their experience, skills and knowledge to provide comprehensive autism diagnosis assessments. We specialise in providing assessments for adults and children over 16. 

If you would like to complete an assessment to find out if you have a diagnosis of autism, here at Robb Psychology Kent we use tools that are “gold-standard” for ASD diagnosis.

Assessments can differ between each person and we tailor our assessments for each individual. However, a core assessment will usually include the following:-

  1. Initial screening questionaires for you to complete and preliminary information gathering, e.g., about your family history and early history.
  2.  We meet, usually over a morning, to complete an in depth assessment and observation of your difficulties. For this we use "gold standard" assessment tools (e.g., ADI-R  and ADOS-2). 
  3. Within 2-3 weeks of the assessment, we will provide you with a comprehensive diagnostic report and feedback meeting. This is to discuss the outcome of the report, recommendations about steps you can take to help you manage in your day to day life, as well as ways in which other people may support you (e.g., at home, at work or at school/college). 
  4. Following your assessment we are able to provide post-diagnostic support as required. 

Our reports are recognised by the NHS and other statutory organisations. 

If you would like to discuss the process, have any questions or would like to arrange an initial free telephone or email consultation, please do get in touch.
