ADHD & Autism
Thorough assessments using standardized screening and diagnostic tools are carried out. For children with a diagnosis of ADHD specific questionnaires like Conner's and Vanderbilt are used. If a more comprehensive behavioural assessment is required, then appropriate referrals to Educational and clinical psychologists is made. Assessment for academic achievement can also be carried out based on child's need. Autism diagnostic tools like MCAT, GARS, ADI-R and ADOS are used to complete a thorough and comprehensive assessment for a child. Once a diagnosis has been confirmed, individualized recommendations are made for school and parents. ABA therapy is also offered for children in whom it is indicated. For children with other co-morbidities like speech delay and delayed motor development appropriate assessment and therapy from our speech and language therapists , physiotherapists and occupational therapists is instituted.
