Neuropsychological Testing For Autism

Parents all want the best for their children. Naturally, all children experience the world in different ways, particularly if they have different cognitive patterns. Autism is typically identified by difficulties experienced in communication and social interactions. Anyone that is diagnosed with autism will be assessed in terms of where they place on the spectrum, but it is also worthwhile to dig deeper to gain a more complete understanding of where their strengths and weaknesses lie, so that appropriate treatment can be determined.

Neuropsychological Assessment for Autism in Australia 

At Jurmaine Health, we carry out neuropsychological testing for autism at our clinics in Victoria. We are known as experts for neuropsychology in Australia and, as such, we strive to provide those that we work with a superior level of insight. We have more than a decade of experience in this area and are renowned for our fast, accessible and highly professional approach.

Neuropsychological testing seeks to study the relationship between cognitive function and our thought patterns, emotions, behaviour, how we learn and understand the world. Where this differentiates from other testing is that it seeks to gain a complete appreciation for where strengths and weaknesses lie for each individual. The ultimate benefit that stems from this pursuit is that it can inform how best to proceed. With regards to autism, this can mean helping to make decisions about educational strategies as well as how best to engage with the school and home environments.

What Neuropsychological Testing For Autism Involves 

If a child is identified as requiring testing for autism, then it is inevitable that the school will carry out their own assessment, so that they can determine how best to engage the pupil. However, while it might seem as though a full assessment has been carried out, it is worth keeping in mind that the school has its own criteria that they need to satisfy.

Therefore, seeking a clinical neuropsychological assessment for autism is essential to gain a closer appreciation of the complete cognitive functions of the child. Learning capabilities, memory aptitudes, general intelligence, visual perception, problem-solving, executive functioning as well as planning and execution are all taken into consideration.

The net result can be a more positive approach to engaging your child with the world. Gaining an individual perspective can help our team to come up with more effective strategies that can greatly improve your child’s quality of life. Once we know what their unique strengths and challenges are, it becomes easier to create support structures that promote a less obstructed path day-to-day.

Most importantly, we can provide insights into the reasons behind a child’s behaviour patterns. Clarity and knowledge can relieve many stressors and with the appropriate information, it becomes possible to plan and adapt when challenges arise.

Delivering Effective Neuropsychological Testing For Autism 

At Jurmaine Health, our cognitive assessments in Melbourne typically takes up to 4 hours. This can change depending on the child that we are testing. Writing reports usually requires up to 6 hours to complete and in the aftermath, we like to schedule a time to discuss it with those concerned. Rest assured, we endeavour to make the process as fast and seamless as possible, to learn as much as we can and deliver the most effective recommendations.

Neuropsychological testing for autism can benefit your child or the child that is in your care. While in some instances it may be necessary for caseworkers, our team are also open to the general public. So, if you wish to make an appointment or discuss our test further, feel free to email or phone us today.
