Private Clients – Initial Consultation
On contacting Spectrum North West, you may be given the option of an initial consultation with two of our clinicians.
This service developed because we recognised that there were occasions when our clients weren’t sure whether to go ahead with a full assessment. An initial consultation provides an opportunity to discuss your concerns with professionals from different clinical backgrounds, which can help clarify what type of services you might need. The initial consultation can be an important step in planning a tailor-made assessment package and is followed by a written summary of our discussion and some brief recommendations.
On some occasions, we may feel that there is not enough evidence of Autistic Spectrum Disorder to warrant proceeding to an assessment. We will always advise where this is the case. Whatever the outcome, you are under no obligation to go ahead with a full assessment following your initial consultation.
