There is now a pre-registration list for those interested in an autism assessment through our service, as we are progressing with recruitment and reducing our backlog. If you have previously completed our pre-diagnostic screening questionnaires and received results from us, you may now email our service to be placed on the pre-registration list to be progressed later in the year at which point we will send out a link to allow registration.
New enquiries will continue to be offered our comprehensive pre-diagnostic on-line screening questionnaires as the first step. Once we have emailed the results breakdown, clients can consider whether they would benefit from pursuing a formal autism assessment and can contact us to be added to the pre-registration list.
Clients who have already completed registration forms should have been contacted by us.
Please email us with any enquiries.
Note: The screening questionnaires and breakdown of results are not a formal diagnosis.
If you are at all concerned about how you are feeling, or have concerns about someone else, we would always recommend speaking to someone e.g. GP.
