Marsden Clinical Psychology are a team of psychologists that provide expert clinical treatment to those suffering from psychological difficulties in the
Wollongong and greater Illawarra region.
Our Kids Clinic in Woonona is able to provide expert clinical assessment and treatment to children who are on, or are suspected of being on, the Autism spectrum.
Dr Nick Marsden conducts comprehensive Autism assessments using the gold standard assessment measures: The Autism Diagnostic Observation
Schedule (ADOS-2) and The Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI-R). He will provide a thorough assessment and will provide a written report with diagnosis
and recommendations for future treatment.
AUTISM assessment and diagnosis can be challenging at the best of times. That's why we have developed the CHAMPS team!
Dr Nick is also a part of a local multidisciplinary assessment team for Autism Spectrum Disorder and other Developmental Disorders. This team consists of a paediatrician, clinical psychologist, neuropsychologist, occupational therapist, and speech therapist, and is called CHAMPS (Childhood Autism Multidisciplinary Professional Service). This is a service for the difficult to diagnose developmental disorders and the referral pathway is through a paediatrician.
For further information on our Autism assessments and process as well as costs/rebates, please REFER HERE. You can also contact Dr Nick Marsden on (02) 9139 0126 or via email email@example.com
A referral from a paediatrician or child psychiatrist for an autism assessment is recommended, as this will allow for a Medicare rebate on the assessment (valued up to $339.20). See your GP for a referral to a paediatrician or child psychiatrist.
