Autistic Spectrum Disorder
Learning Disability & Difficulties
Diagnostic assessments for Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities & Difficulties:
Dr Keyes & Associates provide comprehensive diagnostic assessments for children and adults:
Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Learning difficulties (dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia).
If you are considering one of these assessments we would be happy to discuss this with you, so please get in touch. Fees are dependent on the age of the person being assessed, and on the nature of the assessment.
We can offer a screening appointment to give you a better idea if a full assessment is necessary, and screen for other issues which may present similarly to one another (such as ASD, ADHD, sensory processing issues, or anxiety).
Assessments involve an observational interview with the client, interview with the parents (s) if possible, review of school/medical reports, and contact with school if school-age. We use the NICE guidelines recommended tools for each assessment. Two clinicians are involved in each assessment for Autism, with a second rater for observational interviews. We review the findings and write the report together to increase the reliability of the assessment. We will then signpost onto other organisations/professionals as appropriate.
