We’re all wired differently. Around one in seven people in the UK are thought to be neurodivergent, but it can be difficult and time-consuming to gain an assessment and access support.
If you think that you, or a family member aged seven or over, could benefit from an assessment for autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia or dyscalculia, our neurodiversity service is here to help you take that first step.
To be able to access this service you must have:
Benefit is available for the following neurodivergent conditions when you are referred by your GP for suspected: autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and the following learning differences: dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia.
The referral can be from any GP. However, some online GPs are not able to support ongoing prescriptions, so you may wish to speak to your practice GP.
After initial ADHD medication support, a request can be made to transfer ongoing care to your GP under a shared care arrangement for ongoing management and prescriptions. It is important to note that some GPs do not support ongoing prescriptions under a shared care agreement, which means that you may incur ongoing private medication costs. Alternatively, you can self-pay through ProblemShared to receive ongoing medication reviews and prescriptions.
