Combined autism and ADHD assessments for children

We take pride in following the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for autism and ADHD assessment. Our assessments are carried out by a minimum of two experienced clinicians to ensure reliability. We use 'gold standard' recommended assessment tools and work as a team to reach our conclusions.  We offer assessments to children aged 6 and over. 

Our assessment process

Step 1: Online initial consultation (parent only). Young people aged 13+ may also wish to attend. 

Step 2: Two diagnostic interviews (parent only).Young people aged 13+ may also wish to attend

Step 3: Your child attends an assessment (called the ADOS) at one of our clinics in Wokingham (Berkshire), Wallingford (Oxfordshire) or North Clapham (London). Teenagers can also attend at our Southampton clinic.

Step 4: Your child completes a computer attention task at home. 


Step 5: Questionnaires are completed by your child's school/college (if applicable).

Step 6: You and your child attend an online follow up appointment to discuss the assessment outcome. If your child is quite young, you may wish to attend a parent only follow up session and discuss the outcome of the assessment with your child at a later date.


After diagnosis

You will receive a detailed report that includes your child's strengths, challenges and our recommendations. If a diagnosis of ADHD is provided, we will signpost you to our colleagues in private ADHD treatment services, if you would like to explore medications for your child.  We can also offer parent post diagnostic support sessions.
