Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Assessments

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Assessments

Mental health issues can affect anyone at any point in their lives, but we know that they are more common in people on the autism spectrum (Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD).

If you or someone you love has ASD, they may struggle with things like anxietydepression or self-harm and need some additional support.

We offer lots of different services to help with these problems, including counselling, therapy and group work. These can be accessed in the usual way by making a referral to our service.

We can also provide ASD assessments for children and young people who have not yet been diagnosed and are experiencing mental health issues. In order to complete an ASD assessment we will ask you to meet with our specialist clinicians to help us gather more information. This could involve questionnaires, observations and assessments on areas such as communication and problem solving but don't worry, we're here to help you through each stage of the process.

How to access the service

Support for mental health issues can be accessed in the usual ways - through a referral to our service.

You can also visit Pause, our friendly city-centre drop-in service.

If you, a child or young person you know is experiencing mental health problems but also think that an assessment for ASD might be needed, please make a referral to our service detailing the concerns.

If you would like an ASD assessment for yourself or a child or young person but there are no current mental health issues, this is offered by other services. Your GP will be able to help you access these.
