Sample Profiles

Each person's autism is different. Autism symptoms, for example, difficulty with change or an inability to understand jokes or sarcasm, can be caused by a wide range of different underlying issues.

Below are some autism profiles of real people who Aspiedent have profiled. However, they have been standardised so they can be used as examples and to make it harder to identify the individual concerned. These illustrate just how broad a condition autism is.

This is why we say that if you understand autism, you understand the whole of humanity and why being able to do autism profiles, means Aspiedent can profile anyone whether or not they have a diagnosed cognitive disability. This is why a diagnosis is not required for a workplace assessment (although we do require a diagnosis for individuals) and why the same approach can help businesses understand cognitive diversity within their team via a less in depth approach.

The diagnostic criteria for autism are set out in a manual that health professionals use to diagnose autism spectrum disorder, called the DSM-5.

In each case we relate the underlying issues back to the diagnostic criteria. This demonstrates that Aspiedent’s Integrative Cognitive Profiling tool explains an individual's autism in a way that satisfies the diagnostic criteria.

A full autism profile includes background information, and recommendations. The sample profiles give an idea of the categories of underlying issues we cover. The categories in each report will vary depending on the cognitive make-up of the individual.
