Main Services Provided

As a parent/carer you may have concerns about your child or young person’s development or whether he/she may have ASD. The first person you should approach is your Health Visitor, a professional involved in your child’s care or your GP

The ASD Service is a multi disciplinary service that has been developed to offer assessment, diagnosis, support and early intervention for children and young people who are presenting with characteristics commonly associated with the Autism Spectrum.

The Autism Team provides support to children with Autism and to their families. We are a multi-disciplinary team, which means members have a range of professional qualifications and experience in many areas including:

• Clinical Psychology
• Community Paediatrics
• Social Work
• Speech & Language Therapy
• Autism Practitioner
• Occupational Therapy and
• Specialist Health Visitors

Central to the work of the team is the Autism Service Co-ordinator. We are here to provide support and advice from the first stages of the assessment and diagnosis process and throughout your contact with us. For general, non-urgent enquiries contact: 028 8283 5983.

Clear guidance has recently been published about how children in Northern Ireland are assessed, diagnosed and subsequently supported. This guidance is called the “Six Steps of Autism Care” and it explains what happens when a child is put forward for assessment. We have also created a short video clip (social story) to help explain the process of assessment in the Western Trust. To view this and for further information please check the Trust website.
