Multi-Disciplinary Assessment of
Social Communication and Learning

Let’s Talk Autism Ltd. are able to provide comprehensive assessment of social communication and learning in partnership with The Autism Practice in Northampton.

Let’s Talk are certified to use the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) 2 as part of the assessment process. Assessment is tailor-made to meet the individual requirements of the client and complies with NICE guidelines for assessment of autism spectrum disorders.

Assessment can involve the following processes:

  • Initial consultation
  • Speech, Language and Communication assessment
  • Assessment of cognition and learning
  • Observations at home/school/college
  • Parental and carer interview
  • Clinic observations
  • Liaison with other professionals involved with the client

Consultations

We are proud to offer individualised consultations for children and young people with autism at home, school or in a residential setting. We will support you to understand more about communication, interaction, emotional regulation, and functional skills as part of this process. Consultations are often taken as a second opinion or for legal cases and consider what support is needed for your child or young person to flourish both socially and academically. We often provide assessment and advice in legal cases or for an Educational and Health Care Plan (EHCP) assessment.

Animal Assisted Therapy

Hendrix the therapy dog will visit and provide both animal encounters and animal assisted therapy sessions for groups or individuals. Client’s can learn more about animal care, grooming, feeding and lead control or have Hendrix join sessions to enhance the outcomes of more traditional speech and language therapy programmes. Sessions are tailormade to meet client need. For more information please contact us via the contact form.

Dan (SENCO-London) says about our training; “The sessions provide useful examples and strategies that can be lifted and used in the classroom. Ideas around adaptations are available and group discussions enable individuals to share their own successes and alternative ideas. Practical role plays are useful.”
