As an experienced clinician within the NHS, I understand that it can be difficult to get a timely assessment if you have concerns about your child being on the Autistic Spectrum (ASD). This understandably leads to unnecessary stress for everyone involved. I offer immediate and comprehensive specialist ASD assessments for children. As I understand that the nature of ASD means that children may find being outside of their home environment anxiety provoking, and every effort is made to ensure the process is as relaxed as possible.
Some adults with ASD grow up without their condition being diagnosed or recognised. This can potentially mean that they are not receiving the support they are entitled to. A formal ASD diagnosis can open up the possibility of additional support as well as allowing a more in depth understanding of difficulties.
