Diagnostics

We understand how difficult it can be for parents who recognise developmental difficulties in their child.

You may be concerned that your child has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) if he or she has trouble with social and communication skills or restricted or repetitive behaviours. For example, perhaps your child:

  • looks away when you speak to him/her
  • doesn’t return your smile
  • has a lack of interest in other children
  • cannot copy simple motor movements such as clapping hands
  • has difficulty coping with change
  • has unusual language patterns or motor movements, such as hand flapping or walking on tiptoes.
  • becomes distressed by everyday sounds such as a hair dryer or blender
  • uses their peripheral vision to look at objects
  • loves or avoids certain textures.
