Autism Assessment & Early Intervention Services
Our team is proud to offer specialist autism assessments in the world-renowned Harley Street Medical Area, within four weeks of enquiry at an affordable price. With extensive NHS and private sector experience our Consultants provide outstanding clinical expertise with a collaborative approach. The multi-disciplinary team comprises a Paediatrician, Child Psychiatrist, Speech and Language Therapist and Psychologist/Autism Practitioner who utilise a series of gold standard diagnostic tools tailored to the child’s specific constellation of symptoms, working collaboratively with family members, teachers and carers.
The Autism Assessments at Re:Cognition Health encompass an initial assessment with the child’s parent or carer and will involve a Developmental Interview as well as the Autism Diagnostic Observational Schedule (ADOS-2) which is a play-based assessment with the child which reviews communication and social behaviour through age-appropriate games, activities and conversation. Following these assessments, a detailed report will be issued with diagnosis, guidance and recommendations within 2-4 weeks. The report is specifically tailored to the educational, behavioural and developmental needs of the child and offers further recommendations, all of which are reviewed and discussed in a virtual follow-up appointment. Our reports are recognised by both the NHS and Education Authorities.
The Autism Service also includes evidence-based early intervention. We are the only clinic in the UK to offer the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) Parent Coaching, a play-based programme designed for infants and toddlers with autism. Hailed in 2012 as one of the top 10 medical breakthroughs, ESDM is designed to enhance language, social communication, imitation, joint attention, play, motor & self-care skills. Our service also offers the Paediatric Autism Communication Therapy (PACT) which is a parent/carer-led video feedback intervention. With both ESDM and PACT parents/carers work with the certified therapist in the clinic and apply the play principles with their child at home. Multiple published studies have shown evidence of improvements in core autistic symptoms and long-term benefits in young children with autism who have received these interventions.
Re:Cognition Health is passionate about supporting each individual to reach their fullest potential.
