Bedfordshire's Community Health Services and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are working together to create our neurodevelopmental disorder asessment pathway. Find out more: NDD pathway guidance
Working with partners from the Local Authority, local charities and community services we have created a pathway of early intervention and support as well as mapping out the pathway of assessment should you or your child be referred into either Community Health Services or CAMHS for an assessment of a suspected neurodevelopmental disorder (such as Autism or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
The assessment will look at all your child’s strengths and weaknesses to provide a full developmental profile. We may also assess their cognition and learning ability and their functional skills. As part of this assessment we aim to gather as much information to help with our assessment; this will include liaising with school and any other professionals involved.
