Joanna Beckett

MSc (Clin Psych), MSc (Health Psych)

I am a fully qualified 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.

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.

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.
