Assessment inquiry

Thank you for your interest in pursuing
an adult autism assessment with me!

As a courtesy, I provide an initial screening assessment to prevent the cost and time associated with a full diagnostic assessment; if it becomes apparent early on in the process that you do not fulfill the DSM-5 criteria for an autism diagnosis, you don’t have to spend more time and money.

At the end of the screening assessment, you will be advised on whether it makes sense to complete the diagnostic process. Below you will find information about the assessment process, fees, and an FAQ page with answers to frequently-asked questions.

Click the button below to go to the Process & fees page which has more information on what you can expect and what the costs are.

Screening assessment

The screening assessment is a written process. Many people find that they need space between psychometrics, and time to contemplate their answers. You can complete the assessment at your own pace.

Please be aware; the screening assessment is a prerequisite for the diagnostic assessment. The diagnostic assessment includes a live virtual interview.

I am qualified to assess for autism, but you will need to confirm whether the relevant organizations accept the assessment as a formal diagnosis where you reside or are employed. My assessments have been accepted worldwide, including in the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe.

As a psychotherapist and clinician, I am trained in working with different cultures, sexes, and genders. This is a place where human rights are respected, and where all cultures and LGBTQ+ are welcomed and supported.

A flyer on the subject of a ‘Positive space’, with the following text, “This is a place where human rights are respected and where neurodiversity and intersectionality are honored.We welcome and support lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, asexual, and aromantic people—as well as their friends and allies.”

If you decide to proceed with a screening assessment,
please make your payment below.

Following payment, you will receive a receipt
with a client number, which you can use to
access the screening questionnaire.

Procedure

Once I receive your completed questionnaire, you can expect the results in 4–6 weeks.

Based on the outcome, you can then decide whether you would like to continue with a diagnostic assessment.

For some, a diagnosis provides a sense of relief and enables significant positive changes. Others seek help with co-occurrences such as alexithymia or challenges that prevent optimal well-being. For these reasons, I do offer sessions using evidence-based psychotherapy practices.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

Dr. Natalie Engelbrecht’s signature
