Frequently Asked Questions
Is it a diagnosis?
What is the process?
We will then arrange for your assessment; this will take place face-to-face. We understand that some services offer remote assessments, however ADOS-2 has not been validated for remote assessments. We believe strongly that face-to-face assessment is required to gather suitable evidence and to preserve the integrity of the assessment process.
At the assessment we will ask you to sign an agreement for our payment plan, as well as completing a standing order for your payment details.
Once your assessment has been completed, the multidisciplinary team will discuss your case to ensure consistency on the assessment decision. We will produce a report which we will forward to you for your review. We will then discuss the report with you and ensure you are clear on what the next steps are. You will notice our report includes references to support groups, benefits, and social media listings, which may well be beneficial for you.
What is the timeframe? - 6 weeks
What is the cost? - £166 pcm for 12 months (£2,000)
How can we get financial support to help pay for the assessment?
What can I use report for?
You can use the report to access reasonable adjustments under the 2010 Equality Act, to enable you to function better in your workplace.
What about medication for ADHD?
We use exactly the same tools as recommended in the NICE guidance. Assessments are conducted to the same standards, though some NHS local services state they will not accept a private assessment. We fully believe in the right to complain to access the help and support that you or your child needs.
Some of our clients utilise the reports to access medication privately, whilst they are waiting for their local NHS service.
