Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a lifelong condition and aspect of your identity, it is not a medical condition with a cure. It simply means your brain functions differently from others and it is a trait you are born with, although signs of ASD may become apparent early in life or later on. Some individuals may require support for specific aspects of their life and many find early diagnosis and intervention can make a significant impact. Our autism assessments in London can help you do this.

What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?

In adults, common characteristics of autism include challenges in understanding others' thoughts and feelings, and difficulties with interpreting facial expressions, body language, and social cues. But, it’s important to understand that autism exists on a spectrum and, as a result, each autistic person is unique.

While some may require minimal or no support, others may need assistance from a caregiver on a daily basis. It's important to recognise that autistic individuals often have co-occurring conditions, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, anxiety, depression, or epilepsy.

5 star Doctify review for our doctor.
My ADHD assessment was with Dr Rostamipour, the whole process was relaxed and he time to explain the diagnosis and how it was impacting my life. The medication has literally changed my life. Hopefully the future is looking a lot more settled and enjoyable. Thank you.

Review of Dr Rostamipour

Key Indicators of Autism

Common signs of autism in adults include difficulty comprehending others' thoughts and emotions, heightened social anxiety, challenges in making friends or a preference for solitude, unintentional bluntness or social disinterest, difficulty expressing emotions, taking language very literally, and a strong preference for routine, accompanied by significant anxiety when it's disrupted.

Autistic individuals may also display traits like not understanding social norms (e.g., talking over people), avoiding eye contact, discomfort with physical proximity, heightened sensitivity to details, patterns, smells, or sounds, intense interests in specific subjects or activities, and a preference for planning activities meticulously.

When it comes to autism in men and women, autism can manifest differently. Autistic women may exhibit quieter or more adaptive behaviours, potentially making it harder to identify their autism.

Our Private ASD Assessment in London

We offer a comprehensive range of services tailored to adults who have or may have autism spectrum disorders. Our seasoned team of expert psychiatrists is well-versed in this field and able to carry out consultations in order to provide you with a confirmed diagnosis and bespoke plan to help you manage your condition or alternative options to help you manage an existing condition. 

Initially, our medical specialists will conduct a thorough assessment, which involves a top-tier diagnostic interview for ASD to understand how the condition impacts your daily life. In addition, we perform further screening for co-occurring disorders, such as ADHD, personality concerns, substance use, emotional challenges, bipolar personality disorder (BPD), and sleep difficulties.

To confirm the autism diagnosis, you'll be asked to complete a series of questionnaires online. These questionnaires help us gather objective, reliable data to establish a baseline and measure your ASD symptoms. In the event of an ASD diagnosis, this data serves as a valuable measurement tool for ongoing treatment, enabling us to assess the effectiveness of interventions and make improvements if necessary.

We recognise that receiving an ASD diagnosis can be a challenging moment for you and your family. Our consultant psychiatrists will guide you through the next steps and provide recommendations for effectively managing the condition.

Services We Offer

We offer a range of comprehensive services to support those with an ASD diagnosis and those in need of an ASD assessment. At our private clinic in London, we provide:

One of the core services we provide is comprehensive ASD assessments. This process involves a thorough evaluation of an individual's cognitive, social, emotional, and communication abilities. These assessments are crucial for establishing a precise diagnosis, determining an individual's strengths and challenges, and creating a personalised treatment plan. Our clinicians use a variety of standardised tests and observational methods to gather essential information.

After receiving an autism diagnosis, we ensure all our patients receive post-diagnostic care and support. This phase involves creating an individualised plan that addresses specific needs, goals, and challenges. It may include guidance on accessing educational and vocational resources, social skills training, and coping strategies to enhance daily life functioning.

Autism doesn't just affect the individual diagnosed but also has an impact on their entire family. Systemic family therapy is a crucial service we offer. This therapy helps families understand ASD, improve communication, and develop strategies for managing daily life challenges. It can promote a more supportive and understanding family environment.

Occupational therapy focuses on developing the skills necessary for individuals with ASD to perform daily activities, engage in meaningful work, and participate in social interactions. Our occupational therapists work on improving sensory processing, fine and gross motor skills, and self-care routines to enhance overall quality of life.

Many individuals with ASD experience difficulties with speech, language, and communication. Speech and language therapists at private autism clinics work with adults to improve their communication skills, including speech articulation, understanding and using language, and social communication. These therapy sessions aim to enhance an individual's ability to express themselves effectively and interact with others.

Clinical psychologists play a crucial role in the mental health and emotional well-being of adults with ASD. They provide individualised counselling and therapy to address anxiety, depression, stress, and other mental health concerns. These services can be essential for helping individuals with ASD navigate the emotional challenges they may face.

ASD Management Plans

Managing ASD in adults often involves a multi-pronged approach, as the treatment options aim to address a wide range of needs, from social skills and communication to mental health and overall well-being. While every patient is different, our specialists often advise the following methods:

ASD coaching is a specialised form of support designed to assist adults with ASD in developing essential life skills and strategies for managing daily challenges. Our coaches work one-on-one with individuals to improve social interaction, self-regulation, executive function, and overall independence. This form of coaching offers personalised guidance to help adults with ASD adapt to the demands of daily life, education, and employment. Our ASD coaches provide strategies to navigate sensory sensitivities, communication difficulties, and social situations effectively.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a widely used therapeutic approach that has shown success in helping individuals with ASD, particularly those with co-occurring anxiety, depression, or obsessive-compulsive tendencies. CBT focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviours, offering individuals tools to manage anxiety, reduce repetitive behaviours, and improve overall emotional well-being. It is often adapted to suit the specific needs and challenges associated with ASD

Medication may be considered, particularly when there are co-occurring conditions that significantly impact daily life, such as severe anxiety, depression, or mood disorders. Medication options are typically prescribed and monitored by our GPs. These medications aim to alleviate specific symptoms, enhance emotional stability, or manage multiple conditions, thus improving an individual's overall quality of life. It's important to note that medication is considered part of a broader treatment plan and is not the sole approach to managing ASD.

Private GP aftercare provides individuals with ongoing medical support and monitoring to ensure that their overall health and well-being are maintained. This may include regular check-ups, medication management, and coordination of care with other specialists. A private GP can serve as the central point of contact for an individual with ASD, ensuring that their physical health and any medication adjustments are closely monitored, contributing to a comprehensive approach to care.

It's important to recognise that the most effective treatment plan for managing ASD in adults is highly individualised. What works best can vary significantly from person to person, depending on their specific needs, strengths, and challenges. A combination of these treatment options, along with ongoing support and therapy, is often the most effective approach to help individuals with ASD lead fulfilling and productive lives. The choice of treatments should be made in collaboration with a team of specialists who can assess and tailor interventions to address the unique needs of each individual.

Our Approach 

For assessments and treatment of ASD - Our approach to assisting adults displaying ASD symptoms or those with a clear diagnosis, is centred on comprehending your unique needs. Our proficient psychologists will meticulously assess your symptoms, and gather insights from those in your inner circle to discern the specific ASD type you might have and to pinpoint any possible concurrent conditions, such as mood disorders.

Once we have a comprehensive understanding, we craft an individualised treatment plan to help support your overall health and well-being. We will work closely with you to identify the most appropriate course of action, which may encompass medication, therapy, or a blend of both, depending on your specific requirements.

ASD stands for Autism Spectrum Disorder, a complex neurodevelopmental condition that affects social interaction, communication, and behaviour.

During an evaluation for ASD, a healthcare professional, such as a psychologist or developmental paediatrician, conducts a comprehensive assessment that typically involves interviews, observations, and standardised assessments to determine if an individual meets the criteria for an ASD diagnosis.

An ASD assessment can be beneficial by providing a clear diagnosis, guiding treatment planning, and offering individuals and their families a better understanding of their strengths and challenges. Early diagnosis and intervention can lead to improved outcomes and quality of life.

To prepare for an ASD evaluation, gather relevant medical and developmental history information, jot down any concerns or questions you may have, and be ready to provide insights into the individual's behaviour, communication, and social interactions. It's essential to collaborate openly with the evaluating professional to ensure an accurate assessment.
