Autistic herself, she is well equipped to
guide you through the diagnostic process.


Dr. Engelbrecht’s assessment will help you gain
a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself,
or affirm who you have always known yourself to be.

Getting an assessment as an adult (by a qualified clinician who is able
to recognize autism and its many manifestations) will result in a greater understanding of yourself, it will help you capitalize on your strengths,
and it can help you improve challenging areas.

It can also help your partner(s), colleagues, friends, and family better
understand your unique qualities. And with a formal diagnosis, you may
be able to get accommodations or get access to local resources.

Instructions

Watch the short video below to get an idea of what you can expect from the assessment process, and from working with me.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or to tell me about your experience before proceeding with the autism assessment.

The process

As a courtesy, I provide the
autism assessment in 2 parts:

This assures that—if it becomes apparent that you do not
meet the DSM-5 criteria for an autism diagnosis—you do not have to spend more time and money on the rest of the process.

Screening assessment

The screening is the first part of the assessment process,
which gives an indication of whether you are likely autistic.

Process

  • 13 questions to answer about your experience
    and history
  • 6 psychometrics to fill in: the AQ, RAADS-R,
    CAT-Q, VIA, RBQ-2A, and the Aspie Quiz
  • A review of the submitted information
  • A report based on your answers and
    psychometric scores
  • At the end, you will be advised on whether it makes sense to continue with the diagnostic assessment

Waiting time for assessment report: 3–4 weeks.*

  • Starting from the date you uploaded your documents

Diagnostic assessment

The diagnostic assessment is the second and final step
of the assessment process, which includes more psychometrics,
and an interview with Dr. Natalie Engelbrecht.

At the end of the process, you will receive a diagnostic report,
and you can consider yourself officially diagnosed!

Process

  • 6 psychometrics to fill in: the EQ, SQ,
    ESQ, ASRS-5, TAS-20, and the TEQ
  • A 60–90 minutes interview via teleconference, based on the ADOS-2 Module 4
  • A review of the submitted information
  • A report based on your answers and
    psychometric scores

Waiting time for assessment report: 4–7 weeks.*

in any country.*
