Introductory Call with Our Consultant Psychiatrist
Adult ASD Assessment
Adult ASD Follow Up
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.
If you have questions about what our ASD assessment procedure entails or are uncertain about any part of it, speak with our experienced Consultant Psychiatrist for free? Have a chat with Dr Rostamipour, our in-house Consultant Psychiatrist, to gain insights into our ASD and ADHD evaluations, and he'll also provide information on potential medication options.
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.
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.
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, either by yourself or, in the case of children, by parents and school personnel. 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.
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:
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:
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.
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.
