Autism Assessment Clinic

Does your child have Autism?

We offer comprehensive, compassionate care.

Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or is a neuro-developmental condition. Individuals with ASD have social communication and social interaction difficulties, unusual behaviours and interests. See ASD information Sheet by Amaze for more information on its features, download here.

Whilst there is no cure, engaging children with ASD in intervention (i.e., therapy and support) at an early age is known to help them achieving their full potential later on in life.

If you are concerned about your child’s development or wondered if they have ASD, please contact the Autism Assessment Clinic to book a timely consultation.
