TypeChildren and Young People ADHD & ASD
Our service offers detailed diagnostic assessments for ADHD, ASD and Asperger’s, as well as post-diagnosis support. We help develop coping strategies for the patient and their families, to promote independent living skills and offer support with further education and employment. We also work with their 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 Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Asperger’s Syndrome. All children in secondary school with ADHD/ASD are referred to us.

The coronavirus outbreak is having an impact on everybody’s life. The National Autistic Society have put together useful resources that autistic people and their families can use during this time of changes.
We have a new way of referring - this initiative has been agreed collaboratively with the school SENCO service, Educational Psychology service, countywide Community Paediatric Service, Children’s Services Referral Management Centre (RMC) and CYP ADHD/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).
