Online Autism Assessment For Adults


Considering an Adult Autism Assessment Online?

There are several benefits for autistic clients when choosing to be assessed via Telehealth instead of face-to-face. Here are a few of them:

Familiar and Controlled Environment

For many autistic individuals, the home environment provides a sense of familiarity and control that can significantly reduce anxiety. Being in a known space can help you feel more at ease and better able to engage during the online assessment.

Reduced Sensory Overload

Psychology practices can be overwhelming due to unfamiliar lights, sounds, and other sensory stimuli. Telehealth allows individuals to control their environment, minimising sensory overload and making it easier to focus and communicate effectively.

Immediate Access to Comfort Items

During a Telehealth assessment, individuals can access personal comfort items such as sensory tools, weighted blankets, or favourite objects.  Items you would typically have to leave behind. And while, as a psychologist, we try to have these items available in our offices, we know personal items provide the most comfort to stay calm and focused during the assessment.

Routine and Predictability

Telehealth offers the flexibility to schedule assessments at times that fit seamlessly into an individual's daily routine. This consistency can particularly benefit autistic clients who prefer routine and predictability.

Minimised Social Anxiety

For some individuals with autism, social interactions in unfamiliar settings can be a significant source of anxiety. Online assessment reduces anxiety by allowing you to interact with your psychologist from the comfort and safety of your own home.

Enhanced Communication

Being in a familiar environment can make it easier for individuals with autism to communicate openly and honestly. This can lead to a more accurate and comprehensive assessment, as they may feel more comfortable expressing themselves.

Accessibility and Convenience

Telehealth makes autism assessments more accessible to individuals living in remote areas or with mobility issues. It ensures that everyone has access to quality care, regardless of location, without needing travel.

Comfort in Familiar Routines

Conducting assessments via Telehealth allows individuals to remain in their familiar routines, reducing the stress and disruption of traveling to the psychologist. This can lead to a more accurate representation of their typical behaviors and challenges.
