Service Description

Feel like wait times are too long and the cost is too high for diagnostic assessment? Wanting disability, autistic, mad, & neuroqueer affirming care? Radical assessment focuses on discovery instead of diagnosis. The assessment process is designed as an anti-oppressive exploration of neurodivergent identity to replace or serve as a precursor and addition to traditional diagnostic assessment. Radical assessment does not lead to diagnosis or formal paperwork for accommodations. Instead, it focuses on exploring possible identification with autistic, neurodivergent, and/or neuroqueer community. damn counterspace is creating a foundation of transformative neuroqueer praxis that seeks to transform a traditionally individual process into a collective, community-based, and cultural one. The process includes: (1) 30-minute introductions & what-to-expect meeting (1) 1-hour radical assessment process meeting (1) 1-hour follow-up meeting, made up of (1) 30-minute assessment follow-up for further questions and thoughts to give both parties processing time and (1) 30-minute debriefing conversation. All are welcome to engage with the radical assessment process.
