How is autism diagnosed?

Assessment for autism

A diagnosis of autism will involve a few meetings with a multidisciplinary medical and health professional team. Your child may be asked to attend a series of appointments so specific skills and activities can be observed and assessed. Once this process is complete, a diagnosis of autism may be confirmed.

Autism Pathway

We've co-produced an Autism Pathway with support, resources and services for children and young people. 

More information and support can be found on these websites:

GPs or mental health services may refer people 17.5 years and over.
