Screening Assessments

If you have concerns regarding neurodevelopmental difficulties, but are unsure what type of assessment to go for, or whether an assessessment is needed, it may be helpful to have an initial consultation and screening asssessment. The screening assessment looks at a range of neurodevelopmental difficulties (including Autism and ADHD) and can also explore other neurodevelopmental and mental health difficulties as appropriate.

The screening assessment includes an initial consultation with you (either for yourself or in relation to your child) to find out the difficulties and reasons for seeking an assessment. This is usually a 1 hour appointment either virtually or in person. We then send out screening questionnaires to be completed by you, and teachers (if in relation to a child). Once we receive these back, we score them and decide whether a diagnostic assessment is the most appropriate route and give you a brief feedback about this. The screening assessment will also help to better understand whether an individual or combined asssessment would be helpful or whether the full assessment needs to involve other professionals or additional assessments (e.g. cognitive assessment or observations).

Where a full assessment is not suggested, we can offer a more detailed feedback and discussion about what other reasons you or your child may be struggling.
