All clinicians involved have extensive experience working with people with social communication difficulties and diagnosing ASD.
We regularly partner with Dr Sarah Maynard-Lowe, a chartered psychologist, to undertake a fully NICE-compliant diagnostic assessment.
Before a full assessment is undertaken, Dr Sarah Maynard-Lowe undertakes a one-hour initial consultation to gather information about the individual and to recommend whether or not a full assessment is appropriate.
Full assessment, should it be carried out, is likely to entail a combination of the following, depending on the specific needs and presentation of the individual:
In line with NICE guidelines, the assessment is carried out as part of a multidisciplinary team, joint with a psychologist, and detailed information is also gathered from other settings such as the individual’s workplace.
Additional assessments may be needed depending on the presenting needs and/or in order to guide appropriate support and intervention.
We also partner with professionals from the following organisations to complete adult ASD assessments.
Please contact them directly for information on referral and costs.
