What does an Autism Assessment Involve?
Autism Assessment UK will only recommend carrying out the assessments that are necessary to reach a clear decision as to whether a diagnosis of Autism can be made. This means that the majority of assessments may only require two core components;
1. Direct observational assessment. This can be done via video link, or in clinic with some adaptations. At the moment we are using the BOSA (Brief Observation of Symptoms of Autism).
2. Clinical interview using the Developmental, Dimensional and Diagnostic Interview (3di)
