Our team includes the following professions:

  • social work

What we do

We offer an ASD assessment and diagnostic service for children and young people. We also provide support for children, young people and their families following an autism diagnosis.

We take a multidisciplinary approach to understanding presentations of children and young people who may, or may not, have autism. Our service also works in partnership with community and voluntary organisations to provide a range of support.

Before your child / young person’s autism assessment, please download and read our leaflets on what to expect from our service: Parents’ information leaflet Child / young person’s information leaflet
