Assessment of Neuro-Development Spectrum (Screening across the spectrum)

This is a specialist screening of the Neuro-Developmental Disorder Spectrum when the nature of difficulties are not clear and directive towards any specific condition. The patient will be screened for the whole spectrum of neuro-developmental difficulties - Intellectual Developmental Disorders, Communication Disorders (including Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder), Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Specific Learning Disorders, Motor Disorders and Tic Disorders. 

The assessment comprises of psychometric testing and a structured clinical interview with the patient as well as a parent/carer of the patient who can comment on the patient's childhood development. The interview with the parent/carer can be conducted over the phone or Skype if the parent/carer is unable to attend on the day of the appointment.

The Assessment Process

The assessments last 2 hours. The process will involve:
- Testing through completion of psychometric questionnaire

The patient will be asked to provide the following:
- Completed questionnaires which will be emailed when appointment is confirmed

These can be emailed back or photocopies to be returned on the day of the appointment.
