Event description

Two Day Workshop: Adult Autism Assessment

Ideal for:

  • Experienced therapists wanting to offer existing clients an accessible assessment experience
  • Beginner - intermediate level assessors wanting to hone their skills
  • Those who learn best through discussion and practical application of learning
  • Low income earners (training cost < average cost of 1 x assessment)
  • Those who need a report template to help hone their report writing skills

We are Marie Camin & Esther Fidock and we are passionate about neurodiversity affirming assessment which does not compromise evidence-based practice. We are both ADOS and MIGDAS trained assessors with several years of experience in assessing autism. 

We developed this workshop in 2023 to meet the need for growing demand in adult autism assessment, and a concerning lack of neurodiversity affirming services available to adults. We are proud of the several cohorts we have already supported through this journey.

The workshop is delivered as a two-day, interactive training, including breakout rooms to workshop skills. A fundamental understanding of the Autistic neurotype and neurodiversity affirming paradigm will be assumed knowledge.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify Autistic traits in existing therapy clients
  • Rationalise choice of screening/diagnostic tools
  • Rule-in autism as a valid diagnosis
  • Understand the diverse ways Autistic adults present
  • Consider potential differentials & multiply ND
  • Summarise someone's story with an affirming narrative

No training course, no matter how thorough, can replace 1:1 supervision. Supervision is absolutely essential for any psychologist upskilling in this area. We cannot stress this enough.

To foster a sense of safety and respect attendees' privacy, the workshop runs live & will not be recorded.

This is a 2-Day Training, with dates as follows:

Friday 19th July 9.30am-3.30pm AEDT

Saturday 20th July 9.30am-3.30pm AEDT

Previous workshop attendees have said:

'I loved that it explored the tools in case people were too afraid to ask questions about something "simple". Really covered the bases (and fleshed them out further). It was great to hear about a few tools that I haven't used, as well as the reasoning for using certain tools. Very useful that you talked about clinical reasoning for backing up decisions - made me feel more confident in making my decisions.'

'Enjoy that there is no pressure to participate with your camera on or having to speak :) Just the best being able to learn and engage with amazing clinicians with lived experience. THANK YOU!'

'I really enjoyed exploring the function behind behaviours. Also, the rationale behind asking certain questions for the MIGDAS because there is such a knowledge gap there as the training really only focuses on HOW to administer rather than WHY you're gathering that info. Sooo so helpful! Thank you.'

'One of the most helpful parts of the session was the part describing the differentials between autism, ADHD, tics, & OCD. Such useful information!!'

'The open discussions and all of the examples were useful! And the no pressure to actually contribute if you’re a newbie like me who is on a massive learning journey. Thank you both!'

We offer a reduced cost of $900 for 5 attendees who identify as Autistic & are a low-income earners (e.g., working part-time).
