Paul’s Story

Myself and my wife got to the point with our son were we felt after getting him therapy and on advice, that our son needed an Autism assessment. We got in contact with a few places and it was overwhelming dealing with most places because we were very new to this and with everything from expenses to hearing words that we didn’t know much about to be honest.

Aisling from Autism Assessment Centre got in touch with us after we left an email and from there on in everything was pretty good and easy.  So Aisling through phone calls arranged for us a date to go to Cork for our son to be assessed. The assessment date we chose was a Saturday and were glad of this as were coming from Dublin. 

Before we went to Cork there was a Zoom call with the Psychologist Mary Rizza and she asked questions about our son and in turn we got to ask her everything we wanted to know. After the Zoom call we were quite happy and at ease with everything going forward. 

We went to Cork and our son met with Mary Rizza and her team. She was very good with our son who was nervous and in no time he was laughing away with her and at ease. Our son was taking into a room with Mary and she carried out her assessment. Our son was happy coming out and told us everyone is really nice, which was good because driving down in the car he was a little nervous. 

We got our assessment results about 8 weeks later and everything was explained to us and going forward our options. 

I would honestly highly recommend Autism Assessment Centre to anyone who is in the same situation as us.

Everything from the very start to Aisling talking with us about everything that would happen from start to finish and also the payment plan which was great. Big thank you to all the staff.

Maggie’s Story

Our experience of the Autism Assessment Centre was very good. They were efficient and able provide assessment appointment within 2 months. Administrations staff and coordinators were helpful, informative, and patient. They always followed up to ensure we were clear of each step on the way. 

Educational Psychologist Dr. Mary Rizza was very nice, she was gentle, professional and clear, and explained so much to us. She was very good with my daughter (2 years, 8 months at the time). She ensured the assessment was not hard on her, it was gentle and open, yet thorough, professional and observant. 

The speech and Language therapist Siobhan was very friendly, informative, and very thorough in her observations and information gathering.

They helped us understand many behaviours and gave clarity to what they were finding. They gave a detailed report and explained everything in it, provided clear recommendations, gave helpful advice and many links to various supports after.

I would definitely recommend the Autism Assessment Centre, they were flexible, professional and helped us get the supports our  daughter needs. Thank you to all the team.

Aisling was the first person we encountered and she was extremely helpful and explained all of the steps along the assessment journey really well. The pre screen video conference call was really good and it gave me an opportunity to meet the psychologist my son was going to meet in advance. Communication was really good throughout the process and the turnaround time for confirmation of the appointment was very efficient.
