Video: Autism spectrum disorder assessment

1-8 years

In this video a psychologist and a speech pathologist talk about what happens in an assessment for autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

As part of ASD assessment, health professionals use activities like puzzles, games and pretend play to observe a child’s behaviour, social skills and communication. They also talk to parents to find out about the child’s early development.

Note that the professionals in this video refer to ASD as autism.
