Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that impacts how people socialize, communicate, learn and behave. The word “spectrum” indicates that severity of symptoms can range from minor to severe. Though ASD symptoms normally emerge during the first two years of life, it can be diagnosed at any age. 

Common ASD symptoms in adults include:

  • Difficulty communicating/ interacting with others

  • Anxiety surrounding social situations

  • Repetitive and/ or ritualistic behaviours 

  • Trouble maintaining eye contact

  • Taking conversations literally (e.g., not understanding sarcasm)

  • Poor emotional regulation

An ASD assessment involves:

  • A thorough diagnostic interview with the client and their partner and/ or family members 

  • Complete medical history review (eg. reports from physician, previous assessments)

  • Psychological psycho-diagnostic assessment using measures, observation and interviewing 

  • Evaluation of client’s emotional and social development

  • Detailed report outlining results, diagnostic considerations, and recommendations for treatment
