Gain Clarity With An Online Autism Screening Assessment

Adults who have struggled with social situations, communication, and sensory sensitivities often seek an explanation for their lifelong challenges.

An ASD Screening Assessment can provide clarity and help you understand your unique experience of the world.

Adults With Autism Can Experience:

Social Setting Struggles

Difficulty understanding social cues, body language, and facial expressions. Struggle with making and maintaining friendships, understanding social norms, and expressing emotions appropriately.

Sensory Sensitivities

Overwhelmed by loud noises, bright lights, strong smells, or certain textures. May have a heightened or diminished sensitivity to sensory stimuli.

Repetitive Behaviours

Engages in repetitive behaviours such as hand-flapping, rocking, or repeating phrases.

Communication Challenges

Difficulty with verbal and nonverbal communication including delayed speech development, a monotone or unusual speech pattern, or difficulty initiating or sustaining conversations.

Cognitive Differences

Difficulty with executive functioning skills such as planning, organising, and completing tasks. May also struggle with abstract thinking and understanding other perspectives.

Emotional Regulation

Difficulty regulating emotions, leading to meltdowns or outbursts in response to stress or change.

Varied Manifestations

ASD manifests uniquely in each individual, with varying degrees of impact.

What Does An Autism Screening Assessment Include?

At Jelly Health, we strive to help you get clarity and understand how your mind works uniquely through our tailored assessment process.

The screening assessment involves 3 to 4 sessions, with one session for feedback. The entire assessment process involves the following.

Assessment: Developmental History

A detailed interview will be conducted to understand your milestones, social interactions, and behavioural patterns. Family can participate in this session.

Assessment: Symptom Presentation

Discuss specific symptoms such as sensory processing issues, attention, hyperactivity, anxiety, and social interactions to differentiate between conditions.

Standardised Assessment & Questionnaires

Complete interview-based questionnaires to help you understand how you’ve adapted to cope with symptoms already, by way of camouflaging or masking symptoms.

Feedback Session on Professional Assessment

Receive feedback on findings. If there’s sufficient evidence, you can be referred to a psychiatrist for a formal diagnosis. A formal diagnosis for NDIS funding is required.

Professional Assessment Report (Optional)

Get optional report detailing assessment findings. Adult patients often find the assessment provides sufficient clarity and understanding of how their mind works.

In keeping with best practice some individuals may require further assessment with another health care professional such as a psychiatrist. In particular if the assessment is to support applications for funding. Your psychologist will discuss this with you in the initial meeting.
