About

Shropshire Autism Service is a private assessment and intervention service for children with, or who are suspected of having, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It was set up in response to feedback from parents about gaps in care in the local community, alongside a psychologist’s wish to get things right for this group.

The service consists of healthcare professionals who are experienced in working with children with ASD. They are trained in and knowledgeable about all areas of child development and in completing diagnostic assessments. This requires a high level of specialist skill that is often not readily available to families.

The practice of each clinician is regulated by an independent body, which means the public can be confident about the standard of care provided.

Shropshire Autism Service aims to provide assessments that are high quality, reliable and helpful, and interventions that support children to achieve their potential in terms of their development and mental health.

I believe that parents should be able to get a clear professional opinion about whether or not their child has ASD within weeks of a concern first being raised. To be told that there might be something ‘wrong’ with your child is one of the most difficult things a parent can hear, and to have to wait several months for an assessment creates unnecessary distress; as well as preventing children getting the help they need at what is often a critical time in their development. I also believe that having ASD can have a massive impact on a child’s psychological well-being, but that this impact can be reduced through the provision of effective interventions.
