ASD/ADHD Diagnostic Service
TCT provides a specialist service to assess children and young adults who may have undiagnosed or suspected Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Our diagnostic service has been set up with care and attention to allow a thorough and friendly assessment to take place which will look at the young person in a detailed and holistic manner.
We are a gold-standard service that follows NICE guidelines. Therefore any diagnostic decision made by our team is accepted by other healthcare professionals around the country, schools and local authorities.
Our Diagnostic Pathway
Our ASD assessment includes two paediatrician appointments, a Psychologist's assessment, an ADOS assessment and a full higher-level Speech and Language Therapy assessment.
The ASD service is designed for young people between the ages of
3-18 years of age, when a family, school or other professionals have concerns that the child may be struggling with social skills, learning and/or behaviour due to a possible underlying diagnosis.
Our ADHD service is designed for young people aged between 6-17 years of age - as long as they are in full-time education, as schools play a part in this process.
A brochure outlining full details, plus families' feedback on the service, is available to download below.
Dr Mughal will be retiring from the NHS in October 2023 after many years of dedicated service. We are delighted however, that he will continue to work a few days a week with us here at Total Children’s Therapy.
WHAT FAMILIES SAY
I chose the TCT Diagnostic service as I really wanted somewhere I could trust and highly recommended for being child led.
The team were really patient when X was finding it tricky. I also felt really reassured when we were called back to check as it meant we were 100% and X could reset and show his best.
It was all really positive for us. Thanks very much.
TCT was recommended to me by other parents who home educate.
Everyone we met met was cheery and happy, we felt very welcome. All communication was prompt and clear. Appointments were scheduled quickly.
Thank you for making quite a nerve racking experience lovely and positive.
Waiting times on the NHS were restricting EHCP info and support at school. The prep info for X was brilliant (the photos, social story etc.). The experienced staff were open and honest. There was good communication about the appointments and good facilities. We recommend this service to other families.
Everyone has been extremely welcoming. We were very impressed with how everyone engaged with Y.
Made our daughter feel at ease. A very efficient process.
