Face to face appointments at our Manchester 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 700,000 people living with autism across the UK, 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 Manchester clinic means private assessments are now more readily available in the North West.

Since launching our Manchester clinic in 2022, 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.

“Excellent and professional service from beginning to end. As a result, school have acted swiftly in response to our son’s diagnosis and recommendations in the report.”
