Individual Assessments

We do offer individual assessments for Autism. These entail:

  • Taking a detailed developmental history all about your child
  • observing your child at home and at school or in nursery
  • liaising with other professionals who know your child well e.g. their teacher, with your permission
  • completion of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) if appropriate
  • production of a comprehensive report containing our clinical opinion and diagnosis if appropriate.

Assessments are charged at £1,500. If you would like to discuss this further please contact our email address and a clinician will respond to you.

Behavioural and Speech and Language Support

Capacity to offer ongoing individual support to parents is currently limited but there may be opportunity for families to access some behavioural and speech and language consultation. This will be charged at an hourly rate of £100. If you would like to discuss this further please contact our email address and a clinician will respond to you.

Riding the Rapids – Parents Groups

Currently we do not run courses directly for parents but we are happy to liaise with staff in different areas who might want to complete a Riding the Rapids course so that they are able to deliver in your postcode.
