Joanna A. Beckett, Registered Clinical Psychologist, HCPC
Kingston Upon Thames
Thank you for visiting my profile.
I am a Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist specialising in diagnostic assessments of Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). I currently work in the Specialist Asperger Syndrome Service, where I offer diagnostic assessments of Autism Spectrum Conditions and a range of specialist psychological interventions for adults with ASC.
I offer clinical supervision to psychologists and other health professionals working in the area of Autism Spectrum Conditions.
With my keen professional interest in the subject, I am now conducting research on the adjustment to a late diagnosis of autism in adults at the University of Leicester.
Please note that I currently offer diagnostic assessments to individuals aged 17 years and over.
In my diagnostic work, I use the ‘gold standard’ diagnostic methods in line with the NICE Guidelines. This means that I am fully trained in the administration of the following tools:
The Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised, ADI-R
The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2nd Edition, ADOS-2
The Diagnostic Interview for Social and Communication Disorders, DISCO.
As a Registered Practitioner Clinical Psychologist I adhere to the code of conduct outlined by the Health & Care Professions Council and the British Psychological Society.
