Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that impacts how an individual communicates and interacts socially with others. Individuals with ASD can have a wide range of symptoms. Clinical presentations are unique, with individuals showing differences in the type of symptoms they have, the number of symptoms they have, the severity of their symptoms, and their intellectual abilities.
ASD is a complex disorder. We aim to provide a thorough assessment of ASD that considers an individual’s unique needs and strengths. We provide school-age and adult assessments of ASD.
At Sage, we also have extensive experience at the interface with other support services in the community. We work closely with residential centers in the region, collaborate with international centers of excellence, and with community-based providers and support services locally – drawing on our team’s extensive experience with local regulators, providers, charities and social services.
Sage also has specialized therapists to support parents and families of people with ASD whose exemplary love and patience often need to be bolstered with professional support to help maintain their own mental health and emotional wellbeing.

Autism assessments typically involve a comprehensive evaluation of an individual’s behavioral, developmental, and medical history. Once the clinician has carried out a detailed history, they may want to do a screening test for Autism (3Di) which may be followed by a more specific diagnostic assessment (ADOS2). The Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale 2nd edition (ADOS2) is a standardized diagnostic assessment of social, imagination and communication skills of individuals who may have autism spectrum disorders (ASD). It is suitable for all ages, backgrounds, and developmental levels.
You can also contact us about our ASD service if you are a family member, loved one, or carer of a person with ASD who is experiencing stress, burnout or emotional exhaustion and need support with coping mechanisms and other strategies to maintain or recover your mental health and emotional wellbeing.
