Scarborough and Ryedale NHS children and young people's service
An NHS-funded service
We provide an Autism Assessment Service which is free at the point of service, for people from within the Scarbrough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) area.
PLEASE NOTE: You cannot refer yourself to the Scarbrough and Ryedale Autism Assessment Service. A referral has to be made by a health or social care professional.
What does the service offer?
- Screening for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Assessment and diagnosis of ASD
Getting an Assessment
- If you think that your child has Autism you should contact your GP. Your GP can refer him or her for an assessment as they have access to the correct referral form.
- If you are working with a Social Worker CAMHs you can contact them. They can make a referral for an assessment. The SENCO at your child's school can also make a referral.
If your child already has a diagnosis of Autism then they will not be able to access our NHS-funded service, which is for assessments only.
Professionals seeking to refer to the Assessment Service?
If you are a GP, Social Worker or CAMHs team member or SENCO within Scarborough and Ryedale CCG, please contact us for a referral form at firstname.lastname@example.org
