Specialist psychological assessment and intervention for Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome based in the west of Ireland. Assessments are also carried out in Galway, Cork, and Waterford.
Lighthouse Autism Ireland is comprised of a small independent team of consultant adult and child psychologists based in Limerick. We have extensive experience in diagnosing developmental disorders in children. Much of our work has been in child development and specifically within the field of autism and Asperger’s syndrome. We also provide a range of cognitive assessments. We work closely with speech therapists and occupational therapists.
Our commitment, experience and skill ensures that you are able to achieve the correct diagnosis for your child, access support and achieve the correct intervention. These are vital factors in helping your child reach their unique potential. We specialise in early diagnosis and also provide adult assessments. We also provide Learning Disability Assessments, Pervasive Development Disorder Assessments, Foetal Alcohol Assessments and a range of screening protocols.
Lighthouse Autism Ireland understands the difficulties and stress that psychological assessments can cause. This is why our assessment processes are carried out in an autistic friendly environment complete with sensory tools. We are also very family friendly and encourage family members to attend the assessment. We also have a specially trained autism dog who really helps children in the assessment process.
