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, an Educational Psychology 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.
WHAT FAMILIES SAY
I want to thank you and the doctor so much for your help in discounting ADHD and autism as X’s diagnosis.
The doctor was so thorough and so friendly. He had an amazing ability to strike up a rapport with X in such a short period of time. He had a keen sense of humour and a huge amount of empathy. He made me, my wife and X feel comfortable and absolutely confident in him.
It really is a great service you provide and I shall be recommending it to clients and friends. Once again, thank you so much.
After waiting for years for assessments to happen with the NHS we felt desperate that our child was still not receiving the help they so desperately needed. Their difficulties had taken over their entire life and without the right assessments, we were unable to progress with applications for additional support.
It was such a huge relief to discover TCT offered this service, and we felt confident that their team would be able to help our child again, especially since it was one of their team that correctly identified the problem our child was having approx. 5 years earlier when we first brought our child to TCT. Even then they were able to pick up on certain traits that were not even obvious to us at the time, so we must give praise to their knowledge and skills.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Paediatric Led Service or any of the other services that Total children’s Therapy offer’
The school felt that XX had signs of ASD which was one of my concerns. The paediatrician didn’t feel XX had ASD. He does suffer with OCD and anxiety and was more than helpful with arranging help with a psychologist.
This has all been sorted in weeks and help is in progress which is desperately needed. Where some services have been a total let down yours has been a lifesaver.
I can’t fault you. Just keep up the great work you are doing.
