We provide assessment and treatment for children and adolescents with autism, pervasive developmental disorders and related difficulties.

Our expert team includes psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and a mental health worker, and is renowned nationally and internationally. We lead the way in the diagnosis, assessment and management of complex developmental disorders.

Members of our team also have specialised experience in rare disorders such as Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, Williams syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Cri du Chat syndrome, autism,Cornelia de Lange syndrome, Cohen syndrome and Down’s syndrome.

We specialise in treatment for people where there are particular difficulties in diagnosis or management of autism and related disorders (ARD), including complex diagnostic issues, complicated and challenging behavioural and psychiatric problems, or when services are seeking a second opinion. Our service also takes a special interest in families where more than one individual has ARD, including twins and affected parents.

We also offer consultation, genetic counselling, treatment, support and advice to families or carers in relation to parenting children with ARD or being a parent with ARD.
