Diagnostic and Assessment Clinic
Autism diagnosis at Irabina.
Irabina provides Psychology and Speech Pathology at our assessment clinic for initial autism diagnosis. If you have concerns about your child’s development please make an appointment for an assessment. You do not require a referral from a Paediatrician or General Practitioner (GP) to attend Irabina.
Having a referral, however, does entitle you to a Medicare rebate
which assists with the costs of the assessment. If you are awaiting an appointment with your child’s Paediatrician, we can commence the diagnostic process.
All children attending programs and services at Irabina must have an autism diagnosis or Autism Spectrum Disorder. As is best practice, Irabina recommends that a child’s autism diagnosis is confirmed by:
- A Paediatrician and;
- A Psychologist and;
- A Speech Pathologist
In addition to our diagnostic and assessment clinic, Irabina offers a range of assessments to evaluate your child’s progress, and to support your child’s application for school funding, if applicable.
