Autism ADHD Test Ltd is a specialist assessment services focusing upon:
- Autism assessments, using the NHS ‘Gold standard‘ Autism Diagnosis Observation Schedule- edition 2 for autism assessments
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) assessments using QB check, the computer screening tool
Coupled with our specialist multi-disciplinary team (MDT), we follow the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence clinical guidelines for Autism and ADHD assessments. We will provide you with a professional assessment and offering ongoing support with our trusted recommended partners.
We never do only an ADOS-2, in line with the NIHCE clinical guidelines we always do a comprehensive multi-disciplinary assessment, so our price includes everything – MDT input, multiple assessments, detailed report and recommendations. Not just ASC- (Autistic Spectrum Condition) based, but based on all the MDT assessment, screening tools, developmental and social history, and other sources of relevant information. We provide a budget plan to spread the cost of your MDT assessment over 12 months, as we recognise it’s a significant investment.

We believe we are unique in providing a 1-1 follow-up counselling support session with a qualified Counsellor. We recognise whatever your assessment result, (even if you don’t meet clinical threshold for assessment), you still need to be able to discuss in confidence what has led you to request an assessment. We believe we have a duty to signpost you to a range of services from our trusted partners and specialist groups that can offer support (if required) after the assessment process is over.
