Assessment

Autism Spectrum Disorder/Asperger’s Assessments

SunnyMinds offers comprehensive assessments of autism for children, adolescents and adults using validated and reliable assessment processes. Best practice research suggests that a complete assessment involves gathering information about an individual’s communication, characteristics/behaviour, and interests across settings. More information is available on the Autism Spectrum Disorder/Asperger’s Assessment page.

 

 

Attention Assessments

An attention assessment can assist in identifying if a student meets criteria for an attention difficulty. The Conners 3 Parent and Teacher forms help to obtain information about a child or adolescent’s behaviour at home and in the classroom, identifying issues with concentration such as being easily distracted, or issues with impulsivity or hyperactivity. Children from age 6 to 18 years can be assessed with the Conners 3. More information can be found in the fee schedule

 

Adaptive Assessments

The Adaptive Behaviour Assessment System - Second Edition (ABAS-II) is designed to assess daily functioning skills of individuals between birth and 89 years of age. The ABAS-II questionnaires can be completed by adult clients, parents/carers, or teachers. These questionnaires gather information about the amount of assistance a child, adolescent or adult needs to engage in everyday tasks. These are assessed across a number of areas including communication, social and leisure activities, and academic or work tasks. An adaptive assessment can sometimes be requested by a funding body to ascertain the level of impairment an individual might experience in their independent living skills relative to others their own age. The ABAS-II also provides information about the amount of support required, and recommended interventions for an individual to reach their full potential.
