Package 7: Combined Child Autism and ADHD Assessment
In the spirit of neuro-affirmation, we recognize that ADHD often coexists with other neurodevelopmental conditions, such as ASD. Simultaneously assessing these aspects provides a comprehensive understanding of an individual's cognitive landscape, guiding us to tailor support and strategies that honour their unique strengths and challenges. Our goal is to empower individuals with ADHD and ASD to navigate life authentically, fostering a sense of self-worth and promoting engagement within their communities. A dual assessment will provide an understanding of a child's cognitive strengths and areas of need, as well as recommendations for school and learning support.
