ASD Assessment service provided by ASD Docs

'ASD Docs' - ASD Diagnosis Service

An independent NICE compliant multi disciplinary neurodevelopmental service based in Brighton and Hove.


Autistic Spectrum Conditions previously known as Asperger's Syndrome and Autism, are typically lifelong neurodevelopmental conditions that affect how an individual communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world.


Assessment and diagnosis can help your child or young person to fulfil their potential, feel understood and get appropriate support at home and school.


We use the 'Gold Standard' ADI & ADOS assessment tools. We all have a huge amount of experience in this area. In 2017, Charlotte, Sarah & Richard published a paper on Autism and Attachment - "The Coventry Grid Interview" (full reference: Flackhill, C., James, S., Soppitt R., Milton, K. (2017). The Coventry Grid Interview (CGI): Exploring Autism & Attachment Difficulties. Good Autism Practice, 18, 1, 62-80.)
