When is a diagnosis given?

We aim to conclude our assessments with a better understanding of a child or young person’s strengths and areas of difference. This may include the child/young person receiving a diagnosis of Autism or an alternative diagnosis which better explains that person’s presentation, such as Dyspraxia, Developmental Language Disorder, a Learning Disability or differences in attachment style. It is not always possible for a clear diagnosis to be given and in these cases we aim to provide children/young people, their families and schools with a description of their individual strengths and needs and recommendations on how to support these.
