Our Process

Assessment of ASD

Our Process

Our Three-Stage Assessment Process

Stage 1: Comprehensive Assessments and Questionnaires

Begin your journey with a series of detailed assessments and questionnaires. This stage is crucial in gathering diverse pieces of information about your experiences, traits, and behaviours.

Stage 2: Personalized Interaction

Stage 3: Expert Review

At Sanctum Healthcare, our commitment to understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is both rigorous and in-depth. Our approach delves deep into the multifaceted nature of autism, aiming to uncover not just the observable traits, but also the underlying complexities that define each individual’s experience. We employ a comprehensive array of assessments and evaluations, considering up to 17 independent pieces of evidence before making a diagnosis. This meticulous process, aligned with the DSM V Criteria for ASD, ensures a thorough and nuanced understanding of each individual’s unique profile, including their cognitive, emotional, and behavioral patterns. Our focus extends beyond mere diagnosis; we strive to understand the full spectrum of each individual’s experiences, challenges, and strengths. This depth of understanding is crucial in tailoring effective management strategies and providing the most supportive and empowering care possible.

Following the assessment, you will receive a detailed report adhering to the DSM V-TR criteria. This report is not just a diagnosis; it’s a gateway to understanding your unique profile and needs.
