Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism is a developmental condition and can cause a number of difficulties for individuals, particularly in terms of how they may communicate and interact with others. There is a wide range of possible symptoms and this is why an expert in the assessment of Autism is important. One of our experienced clinical psychologists at Prometheus can help identify the difficulties someone may be having as part of this condition, such as:

  • social issues
  • sleeping issues
  • unexpected behaviour in social situations
  • a preoccupation with particular topics or interests
  • a lack of empathy
  • behavioural issues
  • severe anxiety
  • delayed speech
  • repetitive speech or motion.

These symptoms can usually be evident in childhood but may change as the individual gets older and the traits are not always obvious.

Assessment and Support

The specialist independent clinicians at Prometheus offer both Adult and Child ASD assessments and will discuss with you the implications of this.  The costs of such assessments vary due to the range of options available, such as how detailed the report would need to be, or how much additional work is required, such as observations of a child, particularly if liaison with other professionals is needed to obtain additional assessments such as sensory and / or cognitive assessments.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of an assessment of ASD, please get in contact so that one of our experts can discuss the next steps with you and the fees involved.
