For assessment for autism referrals: When we have received, triaged and accepted your referral you will be informed that you are on our waiting list.
Prior to your assessment you will be sent two questionnaires to complete and then invited for two assessment appointments, the first appointment being via phone or video and the second face to face. Following your assessment, you will be offered advice about the next steps and provided with an assessment outcome report and recommendations.
For support referrals: If appropriate, you will be offered an initial consultation with a member of our team who will assess your needs and make a plan with you. The outcome of that consultation may be that we offer you support via one of our courses, signpost you to other services, or offer you some individual support.
