Amethyst Adult ASD Pathway

After deciding to proceed with an ASD assessment through our service, you are then required to complete an initial registration form.

On receipt of your completed registration form, we then send an invoice to pay the fee.

Following receipt of your fee, we will then send current view and past view questionnaires, along with an AQ10 to complete. It’s helpful if someone who knows you well now, and has known you well in your past completes these questionnaires.

You will then have a 60-90 minute initial assessment appointment with one of our team via video-link or telephone call- someone who knows you well can accompany you at the appointment. If at any point during the assessment process it becomes apparent the individual would benefit from Speech and Language assessment or Occupational Therapy assessment, this will be discussed with you.

You will then be invited for an Autism diagnostic observational Schedule- second edition (ADOS-2). This assessment will be completed face to face.

Finally, you will meet with a member of our team for your feedback appointment. This can be completed remotely or face to face in clinic. Your diagnostic report will be discussed with you at your feedback appointment and you will receive a copy via email/post. During this appointment we can discuss recommendations that may benefit you in the future. It will only be shared with others with your consent.
