Neurodiversity Assessment Service

The GPH Neurodiversity Assessment Service (NAS) is a low-cost service dedicated to providing accessible and affordable autism and Cognitive assessments for people of any age but with a focus on children and young adults.

Our assessments are tailored to each person. We aim to provide you and your family or carer with an understanding of your unique support needs, which may, in some circumstances, support applications for funding.

Who is eligible?

NAS is available to anyone aged 6 years and over who has speaking language skills.

Fees

There are fees to access this service. GPH has kept these as low as possible.

If you have a referral from a paediatrician, psychiatrist, or a GP you may be eligible for some subsidies through Medicare to assist in the cost of the recommended assessment/s. Please click here for a copy of our NAS fees and payment schedule.

Assessment Services Available

Our service commences with an initial appointment to complete a needs assessment.

During this meeting, we work with you to confirm is NAS is the right service for you and to identify the assessments that best match your particular needs.

NAS currently consists of 3 assessment stream offerings which all use evidence-based assessment tools:

Autism assessment

Clinical interview with parents or carer (ADI-R) and structured assessment with the consumer (ADOS).

Cognitive Assessment

Structured assessment (WISC-V or WAIS-IV) with consumer and an assessment of functioning (ABAS-2) for parents or carer.

Combined Autism & Cognitive Assessment Both of the above assessment pathways are completed.

After you have completed the recommended assessments, your clinician will provide you with feedback and recommendations at a post-assessment consultation. You will also receive an assessment report. In some circumstances, we might recommend further assessment by related health professionals, such as a psychiatrist or a paediatrician.
