Autism Assessment

East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust is now offering a Private second stage Autism assessment for children to help reduce waiting times.

We have become aware that some parents wish to take up a private assessment. We want to link these in with the other parts of the service for children being assessed and under our care because this would have advantages for the children.

The assessments

The assessments will take place on the Scott Unit within Eastbourne DGH.

They will involve the ADOS conducted by an East Sussex Healthcare Paediatrician and Highly specialised Speech and Language Therapist or Psychologist.

The assessments will be as robust and thorough as those currently conducted within Community Paediatrics.

Close liaison will ensure that the results of these assessments will be integral to the NHS record which will have benefits for communication to other agencies and professionals, and continuity of care for your child.

Yours sincerely

The Community Paediatricians within the Scott Unit, Conquest and Bexhill clinics.

The Fees

The cost of the Second Stage Autism assessment is £1500.00.
