Why undergo an assessment for ASD, ADHD, ID, FASD and/or SLD?

An assessment for ASD, ADHD, ID, FASD and/or SLD can have the following positive consequences for a person and/or his/her family:

  • Explanation: If a diagnosis is reached, this is often experienced as a milestone in the search for an explanation for certain behaviours and/or difficulties.
  • Information: An assessment gives you a lot of information about a person's strengths and weaknesses and informs his/her treatment.
  • Treatment and support: An assessment can give you access to pharmacological treatment and/or support services (e.g. Support Net, Explore, Linkage) and is often needed by the educational system for them to be able to put the necessary accommodations in place.
