What we Do

Our Neuroaffirming Approach

At MindScope, we understand that every individual is unique and we tailor our comprehensive assessments to each person's specific needs. We utilise the most current and neuroaffirming assessment tools available to ensure accurate and reliable results. Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for our clients throughout the assessment process.

You'll hear us using identity-first language because that is the preference of the Autistic community, and you'll notice we view disability through a social model lens. You can find out more about the neurodiversity-affirming paradigm by checking out the links on the Resources page.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us using the email link at the bottom of the page, and we'll be happy to assist you.
