Face to face appointments at our York 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 diagnosis can be stressful and opening our York clinic means private assessments are now more readily available.

Since launching our York clinic in May 2023, we’ve been able to increase regional capacity and carry out hundreds of assessments. Currently, we’re only carrying out autism assessments although these are available for both adults and children. If you require an ADHD or combined assessment, please book at one of our other locations. Bradford is currently our closest clinic that carries out both pathways.

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

Book an assessment

“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.”

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

“The service I received from the time of the enquiry to the final appointment was simply outstanding. I can’t thank the people I met throughout my assessment enough. They made my life finally make sense”.
