Our Services

First diagnosis

This is provided for children which show signs of being on the autistic spectrum. The child will undergo a complex diagnostic procedure which requires three meetings. Exceptions can be put into place if the person is commuting to Bratislava from far away. The first meeting is based on an anamnestic interview with the primary care giver/ legal guardian without the presence of the child. The second and third meeting is centred on direct interaction with the child. An integral part of the first diagnosis meeting is the provision of information concerning the conclusions of the diagnosis, further counselling and sending a printed copy of the diagnosis documentation to your home address.

Rediagnosis (psychological diagnosis, special-education diagnosis)

This is provided for children with an established diagnosis of a disorder from the autistic spectrum with the aim of assessing the current level of functioning regarding the needs in connection to school or pre-school preparation, as well as conducting an assessment for the purpose of compensation.
