Autism Assessment

We offer autism services, delivered by a highly-trained and experienced team of specialists

Assessment and Diagnosis

We provide a full range of assessments, interventions and follow-on support services to children and their families. We also provide training programmes to children, parents and professionals who support them.

All assessments meet NICE standards. Staff are fully qualified and registered in the use of the Diagnostic Schedule of Social and Communication Disorders (DISCO), the Autism Diagnostic Schedule - Revised (ADI-R) and the ADOS (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule), which constitute the gold standard for autism assessment.

Services are offered in the community in a range of locations within easy access of the families we see. In all areas, we offer a full range of assessments, one-to-one interventions, group programmes, family support and parent workshops. Regular consultation and advice sessions are provided to other professionals, including those in mental health and education.

Services for Children

Because we never forget that each child is an individual, we offer personalised programmes of assessment, using a 'team around the child' model. Our recommendations cover key areas of identified need, so as to contribute effectively to a unified plan, moving forward.

We believe in prioritising parents and carers throughout the assessment process, acknowledging that they are experts on their own children.

We are committed to working with parents so that they have the skills they need to help their child. By empowering parents, we believe we can make a positive difference, not just in the here and now, but for the future.

See our Expert Parents page for more details.

Services for Adults

We meet many adults who have spent a number of years wondering whether they might have an autism spectrum condition. Sometimes they have wrestled with this question for most of their lives and encountered a huge number of difficulties along the way. Other adults approach us after their son or daughter has been assessed by us, as they recognise many features of autism in themselves. 

Here at Midlands Psychology we can help you to find answers to these questions.

We offer adult autism assessments, carried out by trained and experienced clinicians who will guide you through the process from start to finish.
