School Age

We are commissioned to provide assessments for young people who are registered to a GP in Coventry or Warwickshire. We accept referrals from the age of 4 onwards for an assessment of autism. We accept referrals from the age of 6 onwards for an assessment of ADHD. New referrals for young people approaching 17 and above should be directed to the Adult Neurodevelopmental Service. Referrals are accepted from any professional working with the child, this is often a GP, school or paediatrician. All referrals must have consent from parents/guardians.

We are not able to accept self-referrals from parents or young people. If you are concerned about your child or a child in your care who is having significant difficulties, visit your GP or speak to their school.

When making a referral, it is helpful to capture information from both home and school to help us best understand a young person’s needs. Sometimes we may request further information. This is to ensure that any assessment we provide is appropriate for the young person. Please use the form below to make a referral to us:

Please note, we currently have a waiting list for assessments due to the number of referrals we receive. There continues to be a longer wait than we had anticipated and unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide a precise timeframe for assessments. We are working as hard as we can to meet this increased demand.
