NCPS has a 2-part Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) process that is consistent with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guideline.
Part 1 involves:
Parent(s)/carer(s) will receive a report detailing our findings and determining whether further assessment (Part 2) is indicated. If the outcome is unclear ie the difficulties observed could be explained by more than one hypothesis, a recommendation for a referral for the relevant assessment will be made.
Part 2 involves:
A multidisciplinary professionals will evaluate the findings from the assessments and confirm whether a diagnosis of ASD is indicated. Parents/Carers are invited to a feedback meeting to discuss the results and provided with a comprehensive report together with further recommendations.
