Assessment

The list below is for information purposes only. We do not recommend or endorse any of these services.
Public Assessment Route
Although many people choose to follow the public route regarding diagnosis and assessment, it should be noted that waiting lists can be long. Assessments can be arranged through consultation with your GP or the your Local Health Centre. You will then be referred to the local Disability or Mental Health Team for a consultation.

Benefits of choosing this route:

You can be referred to multi disciplinary team, comprised of psychology, speech and language, occupational therapy or medical professionals, who will complete a comprehensive assessment and generate a report.
If a diagnosis is gained through the public route, you may have priority access to services available through your local team.Please not that these can be quite limited
Some schools require a report generated by a public team and are unable to apply for resources for students without it.

Drawbacks of this route:

There are often long waiting times for this route.
There may be limited support available after a diagnosis
If you wish to discuss assessment with your GP, we are happy to provide information and leaflets that you can bring to help with the process. Please call us on 01 8780027 to find out more.

Private Assessment Route
An alternative route for many people is to seek out a private assessment. Although waiting times will be considerable shorter than the public route, the average cost of consultation can be prohibitive. See below for a list of professionals.
Please note that all assessments, whether public or private, are confidential. The terms 'public' and 'private' refer to funding only.
