The Autism Spectrum Disorder Pathway (CAMHS)

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) provide an assessment service to see whether a young person may or may not have a disorder such as an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

There service does not offer ongoing treatment or support. However, we do work closely with local resources such as the Autism Berkshire, Parenting Special Children, ASSIST and PAW’s who all provide parenting programs and post diagnosis support for parents/carers and young people.

What do we do?

We provide an assessment service for children up to the age of 18 where there is a concern that a child/young person has difficulties with communicating and relating to others. We assess children and young people who are suspected to have a social communication disorder such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The assessment team consists of Paediatricians, Psychologists, Speech & Language Therapists and Systemic Psychotherapists. We may conduct our assessments separately or together.

Please see the CAMHS ASD Pathway website for more information at the link below.  Referral is through the Common Point of Entry.
