TypeChildren and Young People ADHD & ASD
Our service offers full diagnostic assessments for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Asperger’s Syndrome, as well as post-diagnosis support.
We help develop coping strategies for the child or young person and their families, to promote independent living skills and offer support with further education and employment. We also work with families to give them all the information they need and to provide workshops where they can learn more.
We have many highly-skilled professionals working in our teams, including clinical psychologists, clinical nurse specialists, occupational therapists and support workers.
Who is this service for? The Children and Young People Team provide diagnosis and treatment for children aged 5-18 years old with ADHD, (ASD) and Asperger’s Syndrome. All children in secondary school with ADHD / ASD are referred to us.

Our referral process has been agreed with the school special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO) service, Educational Psychology service, countywide Community Paediatric Service, Children’s Services Referral Management Centre (RMC) and Children and young people’s Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) service.
We believe the best approach for referral into the service is for schools and parents to work together to complete the referral pack.
Professionals working with families, children and young people in situations where this is not possible should contact us for advice (for example; if the child is not currently in school).
