During the COVID-19 pandemic, we reach out to families and help them through COVID-19.
We conduct telehealth ASD assessments for you or your child (8 years and above). We use verified secure software (Zoom professional). We have been successfully conducting these assessments since March. Please email our off-site Practice Manager who can help with your booking or with any questions. Dr Janine also continues to conduct Adult assessments for ASD entirely via Telehealth sessions as well as ongoing therapy for some clients.

Asperger's & Autism - Across the Lifespan
With more than 20 years of experience working in the area of Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC), Janine offers a range of high quality, individualised services for all age groups and for boys and girls, men and women.
Why see a psychologist skilled in Autism?
Because all sorts of information - some right and some wrong - is available on the internet, parents can find it difficult to separate truth from urban myth. Janine offers clear direction and can help you to sort through the confusion and increase your understanding of your family member with Autism, and prioritise goals and develop strategies to achieve the best outcomes.
Different approaches for different ages
Autism is a developmental condition and the issues and challenges change across the lifespan. A child's concerns are not the same as an adult's. This is the same for individuals with Asperger's and Autism. Times of transition can be especially challenging (e.g. school to university).
We tailor treatment plans to suit the individual, their age, sex and their unique characteristics. There is a strong focus overall on enhancing well-being and developing a range of skills including practical skills and improving relationships.
Clients may return to see Janine throughout their life, as needed, providing continuity of care.
