Assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorder
A psychological educational assessment will evaluate and bring forth information on a persons thinking, emotions, learning styles and behaviour. Thera are several parts of a comprehensive assessment: an interview, observations (more frequently used with children), receiving background information (medical and educational) and direct testing. Testing will have the person engage in a activity to evaluate their general intellectual ability, memory, learning style, problem solving ability, organizational skills, fine motor skills, and academic level/skill. Testing can also have the person or caregiver (parent or spouse) comment on emotions or behaviours using a checklist.
