Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis involves several different specialists and professionals and a range of tests. A multidisciplinary team usually includes a paediatrician or child psychiatrist, a psychologist, occupational therapist (OT) and a speech pathologist.  


At Bright Start Speech Pathology, we use several assessment tools to gain a thorough understanding of your child’s development in order to give an informed diagnostic opinion. This is why we have several appointments with you and your child spaced over a number of weeks where we:

  • interview you

  • watch how your child plays and interacts

  • conduct a thorough communication assessment of your child’s language and social communication skills
