Face to face appointments in our Aberystwyth clinic

Originally starting out in Shrewsbury, The Autism Service has been delivering autism and ADHD assessments for both children and adults since 2019.

With over 27,000 people living with autism across Wales, we recognised the need to supply face-to-face appointments at more locations. Waiting months for an autism or ADHD diagnosis can be stressful and opening our Aberystwyth clinic means private assessments are now more readily available across Wales.

Since launching our Aberystwyth clinic in 2023, we’ve been able to increase regional capacity and carry out hundreds of assessments. With our full range of assessments available, we are able to carry out assessments for both autism & ADHD as well as combinations of the two. Crucially, all assessments are available for both children and adults.

Our clinicians deliver fast, accurate diagnostic assessments to identify whether an individual has ASD or ADHD.

“I cannot fault this organisation from the first phone call to the follow-up report. Everyone was friendly, professional, and caring. I would recommend.”

“Very professional and extremely helpful and friendly. I didn’t receive the outcome I anticipated but gained so much knowledge into what is going on and received plenty of recommendations on what to do next.”

“It was worth every penny. Knowledgeable doctors and even the nursery staff feel they learned from the person who visited them.”
