I provide Autism Assessments,both online and in-person in Hereford, for anyone aged 18 years and over. As a registered professional with the UK Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), I adhere to clinical best practices and employ a positive, strengths-based approach. I believe in a collaborative assessment, taking steady steps together to better comprehend your life experiences.
Having three autistic children of my own, my approach is neuroaffirmative, emphasising a dedication to appreciating and honoring individual autistic experiences. Recognising the complexity of autism, the assessment process spans four sessions, carefully considering your specific support requirements.
Before we meet
We will communicate via email and I will send you forms to complete which help me to better understand your life experiences.
First Session (1 hour)
During our first session, we will explore your experiences further.
Second Session (1 hour)
During this second session, we will have another in-depth conversation continuing from the first session.
Third Session (1 hour)
This session provides an opportunity to review our discussions and formally arrive at Autistic identification (or not).
Regardless of the outcome, whether you are Autistic or not, appropriate support and guidance will be provided.
Follow-up Support Session (1 hour online)
For individuals identified as autistic, this session provides a meaningful and reflective environment to explore your autistic identity, explore the future, and receive practical guidance and support.
In the case of Autistic identification, I will provide you with neurodiversity-affirmative documentation which is fully recognized by statutory support services.
This documentation includes:
- a standard letter for you to use where you feel appropriate,
- a more detailed letter for when you wish to provide more information about your strengths and weaknesses,
- a letter you can give to your GP if you choose to (not compulsory).
Additionally, an Equitable Requirements report will be provided as needed. This document reinforces your Autistic identity and communicates to your work or educational institution their responsibility to provide an equitable environment, enabling you to perform at your best.
Please be aware that any requests for additional documentation beyond these items will incur an additional fee.
£950 for all of the above.
If you would like to book please email me at email@example.com or press the Contact me button below.
We will arrange suitable dates through email and the fee will be payable.
I will send you all relevant documentation to complete and Zoom links for our appointments if we meet online.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries.
