Why Consider a Private Autism Assessment in London?

Our approach is rooted in confidentiality, respect, and personalised care. By choosing a private assessment, individuals can benefit from a thorough evaluation that goes beyond the limitations of public healthcare systems.
Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
ASD is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects brain development, typically diagnosed in childhood and persisting into adulthood. The spectrum nature of ASD implies a wide variety in the type and severity of symptoms.
It’s important to note that autism is not solely attributed to the relationship between individuals and their caregivers, challenging common misconceptions.
Common Symptoms of Autism
Recognising the symptoms of autism is crucial for early intervention and support.
While ASD manifests differently in each individual, some common symptoms include difficulties in social interaction and communication, limited facial expressions, challenges in forming relationships, a preference for routine, repetitive movements, and sensory sensitivities.
Severity Levels of ASD
The severity of ASD varies, impacting an individual’s ability to navigate the world differently. Those with severe ASD may struggle with social interaction, communication, repetitive behaviors, and sensory sensitivities. On the milder end, challenges may include difficulty with transitions, inflexibility in play, distress over changes, and sensory sensitivities.
Private Autism Assessment in London for Children
At Kove, we use gold-standard tools for autism diagnosis, including the Autism Diagnostic Schedule (ADOS-2) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI). Information from parents, schools, or nurseries is also gathered and assessed against internationally recognized criteria (DSM-5). Our multidisciplinary approach ensures a comprehensive understanding of the individual’s unique needs.
