At Essex Autism Service, we provide high quality diagnostic assessments of autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Our experienced clinicians use standardised assessment tools recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). We strive to provide the highest quality of service with our client’s needs central to what we do.
We provide specialist multi-disciplinary assessments for children (from aged two years), adolescents and adults. We are experienced in assessing people who have complex or additional needs. For example, many of our clients have co-occurring ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), executive function problems, sensory processing disorder, Irlens Syndrome (visual stress), dyslexia, intellectual or learning disabilities, mental health problems and genetic syndromes. We specialise in assessing girls and women, who have learned to “mask” their symptoms. We are also trained and experienced in screening for co-occurring Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) alongside an assessment of autism.
Many autistic people also have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). If you or your child are showing signs of ADHD, our clinicians are trained to carry out an additional screening and a full diagnostic assessment.
