Face to face appointments at our Leicester clinic

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

Around 11,000 people live with autism across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, we recognised the need to supply face-to-face appointments at more locations. Waiting months for an autism diagnosis can be stressful and opening our Leicester clinic means private assessments are now more readily available.

Since opening our Leicester clinic in March 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.

“The assessment was a lot more robust then when I tried to do it through the NHS, and I was seen by multiple clinicians and their report was thorough.”

“From being extremely nervous about using a private company for our daughter’s diagnosis, it was actually the best decision we made. The process was seamless from start to finish.”

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