Assessments

I am providing Autism assessments for adults (18+) and have availability from February 2024.

I understand the challenges involved in women, gender diverse individuals, and people from culturally diverse backgrounds accessing accurate and affirming assessments and would be delighted to assist you in your journey towards self-acceptance and understanding.

These assessments can be done via Telehealth or in-person and would include a 4-6 questionnaires which would need to be completed prior to the assessment session. You may be eligible for Medicare rebates for this assessment, please speak to your GP for more information regarding this.

Although assessment can be helpful in providing confirmation, validation, and accessing supports, self-identification is also valid and appropriate. Should you not wish to go through a formal assessment process, you can still access support to explore any concerns or questions you may have regarding differences in a safe and affirming space.

Professional Fees

The total cost for an Autism Assessment is $1,880. You are welcome to pay this cost in full when booking your initial consultation, or you can pay at four points throughout the assessment process in equal amounts of $470.

Payment prior to each session allows for relevant questionnaires to be sent to you and ensures necessary review and planning can take place prior to your session. This minimises the need for further assessment sessions.

Payments are made at the following points in the process:

  1. At the time of BOOKING your Initial Consultation
  2. At the time of ATTENDING your Initial Consultation
  3. At the time of ATTENDING your Assessment Session
  4. At the time of ATTENDING your Feedback Session

In the unlikely case that a further session is needed to complete the assessment, this would be charged at $200 per hour.

Cancellation Fees

  • Once the initial consultation is booked and questionnaires have been sent, an administration fee of $120 is non-refundable. Should you cancel your initial consultation with sufficient notice, you will be refunded $350.
  • Should you cancel your appointment within 24 hours, an additional fee of $70 is payable.
  • Reports will not be released until all fees have been paid.

Reports and Correspondence

You will receive a 5–10 page report as part of the assessment process. Any further reports or correspondence requested will be charged at $200 per hour. Also, please note that I do not provide expert witness reports or services for Legal or Court Related Matters.
