Autism Assessment

Traditional in-person assessment services which often require multiple visits to a clinic spread over several months that can be difficult and stressful for you to join your loved one at each appointment.

The Healios Autism Assessment Service is an alternative interactive online experience via video sessions with a live qualified clinician, supplemented with questionnaires for you and your loved one to complete online at a time and place that is convenient for everyone - making it much easier for the whole family to be part of the assessment journey.

Getting started with the Healios assessment process is quick and easy. You are provided with login details to access your own personal 'My Healios' online portal to book and reschedule assessment sessions, view assessment notes and send personal messages to your Healios clinician so that you can ask questions at any time.

To ensure your online assessment is a success, you will need the following:

  1. A good internet connection
  2. A computer, laptop or large screen tablet
  3. IMPORTANT - We cannot carry out assessments via a smartphone

 

Our assessment process is as follows:

Step 1: Pre assessment questionnaires

Step 2: Gathering school information

Step 3: Assessment Day 1

Session 1 - initial assessment.

This session is 1 hr long, and both you and your child will need to be present. We will ask you about your current issues and take some background history.

Break

Session 2 - Observation and interaction session

This session is for your child and is also 1 hour long. We will undertake some fun activities and ask your child a few questions. Parents (carers or guardians) will be asked not to engage in this session.

During this session we will be asking your child to complete a task that involves a selection of objects. We ask that you prepare these objects, details will be found in your appointment email.

 

Step 4: Assessment Day 2

Session 3

This session is for parents, guardians or carers, your child does not need to be present. During this session we will complete an ADI-r assessment, which is a developmental history assessment. This session can take up to 3 hours.

Details about early behaviour, including social and communication development, are crucial to gaining information to help make a diagnosis of autism. This information can sometimes be difficult to obtain, or for parents to remember accurately, therefore any information you may be able to find and bring with you to the appointment relating to your child’s early years (i.e. school reports, letters, assessments, photos or family videos) can be very helpful.

For various reasons, our sessions are always held in the morning. You may need to inform your child’s school and/or arrange time off work. 

When it’s time to start your assessment process you will be EMAILED a link which guides you to activate your account, just click the link to activate your Healios account.  After you have activated your account, you will receive a call asking about your availability before your sessions are booked.


Step 5: Diagnostic review

After we have gathered our assessment information our team will review whether your child meets the criteria for an autism diagnosis and will write your report.

 

Step 6: Feedback

When we have reached a conclusion, we will contact you to arrange a feedback session with you.

**Please note, we are a very busy service. If you cancel or do not attend your sessions you will have to wait a number of weeks before we can rearrange your appointment.

CHILD AND YOUNG PEOPLE'S MENTAL ILLNESS

Anxiety

Healios delivers a psychological therapy called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for 7-17 year olds with anxiety (with or without low mood) – this includes all forms of anxiety such as social anxiety, separation anxiety, specific phobias, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and generalised anxiety disorder.

CBT has been found to be an effective way of reducing anxiety in children and young people, and is an approved therapy. Healios delivers online CBT to a child/young person and their family. The aim of the Healios CBT programme is to improve your child's anxiety levels while also enhancing the overall family quality of life.

ADULT MENTAL ILLNESS

Psychosis

Psychotic episodes can result from high levels of stress or fear and families often feel shocked or overwhelmed when they happen. Healios works with you to regroup as a family, understand what psychotic symptoms can feel like, discover new ways to cope and support you, as well as your loved one, through this time.

Important information

Healios works in partnership with many NHS Trusts on a commissioned basis.  This means that all our referrals come from our contracted NHS partners.  This means we are UNABLE to ACCEPT DIRECT REQUESTS FOR CARE.  Please do not contact us seeking assessment or treatment.
