Directory of Specialists Diagnosing Autism (ASD) in Adults

Obtaining a diagnosis is difficult for adults. Often, diagnosticians only work with children, or they have a dated and incomplete notion of how autism looks in adults– a fact that is especially true for women and non-binary autistics.

*Note: NeuroClastic has compiled this list of diagnosticians to help the community find a diagnostician in their area. If you would like to recommend a diagnostician or are a diagnostician working with adults and would like to be added to the directory, click here. If you are on the directory and would like to update your information or be/have a diagnostician removed from the directory, click here.

      • Dr Natalie diagnosed me (adult — age 30-31) and it was an extremely pleasant experience. Dr Natalie is also openly autistic.
      • I am in the process of getting assessed through Embrace Autism. The process has been going very well so far, and I trust Dr. Englebrecht as a non-binary, AFAB person, to treat me fairly and not gaslight me. Dr. Englebrecht is herself Autistic]
