About this session
The Parent Neurodiversity Screening is for parents who have begun to question whether neurodivergence might be impacting on you, or your parenting, and would like to have a clearer idea of a path forwards. We will meet for an 90 minute assessment session (online) to gather information about your concerns and symptoms, and how they affect you both personally and in your role as a parent. Before this session, you will complete standardised screening questionnaires for symptoms and experiences associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Condition/Disorder (ASC/D). By the end of the session, we will draw together the information we have gathered, and discuss an action plan. This plan will include a recommendation for whether a formal assessment for ADHD and/or ASC/D would be justified, as well as suggestions for other helpful interventions or resources. If you decide not to pursue a formal assessment and diagnosis, you may wish to book a series of consultation sessions to explore helpful coping strategies relevant to the strengths and difficulties highlighted by the screening assessment. If a full assessment is recommended and you would like to pursue this, I offer online assessments for both parent ADHD and ASC/D. The assessment process for each complies with gold-standard protocols and a neurodiversity-affirming approach: - Clinical interview sessions - Standardised assessment measures and scoring - Gathering information from external informants (where possible) - Multi-disciplinary team discussion - Clinical feedback session - Detailed assessment report - Personal and parenting-focused recommendations - Signposting to helpful resources A parent ADHD assessment costs £1500. A parent ASC/D assessment costs £2000. A combined assessment costs £2750. Alternatively, we can explore signposting options to other formal assessment providers, for example, who offer face-to-face assessments, or who offer integrated medical follow-up care for those interested in medication (for ADHD).
