The Scottish Centre for Autism remains at the Yorkhill site from June 2015 until further notice.
The Centre works with children and young people age 0-18 years who may have Autistic Spectrum Disorder. The team provides a specialist service in 2 parts. A National second opinion assessment and diagnostic service for children and young people, which includes a consultation only service for professionals on request, and an intensive parent-based early intervention programme for children up to the age of 4 years focussing on the core areas of social interaction, communication, imagination and flexibility. Therapy is on an individual basis and involves the child’s parents.
Referral Information: Professionals such as GP’s, Paediatricians, Psychologist and Psychiatrists can refer for a second opinion. Referrals will only be accepted when an initial assessment has been given in the child’s local area. Where a child has a clear diagnosis of Autism or is about to receive a diagnosis, a referral may be made specifically to consider whether the child would benefit from the early intervention programme.
Find more information about the Scottish Centre for Autism on our dedicated pages.
