Our renowned assessment and diagnosis service for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) offers support for adults, children and young people.

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them.

Asperger syndrome is a form of autism.
Individuals across the spectrum of autism often have difficulties developing, maintaining, and understanding social situations and relationships.
There are currently around 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK, which means around 1 in 100 people are living with autism.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a group of behavioural symptoms that include:
Some adults will have ADHD without it being diagnosed at a younger age. Those who are diagnosed at a young age are likely to continue to experience problems, though the symptoms might reduce.
