Autism


Are you a parent with concerns about how your child plays, communicates or gets on with others?  Do you have concerns about your child’s attention and concentration and behaviour?  Have you always felt that your child is somehow different and you can’t quite put your finger on the cause?  Have School or Nursery raised concerns about how your child is doing socially?  If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be interested in the service at The Salisbury Practice.

Autism Spectrum @ The Salisbury Practice is a Service for Children, Young People and Adults where there are concerns that they may have Social Communication Difficulties or an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  We offer a comprehensive Multi-Disciplinary Assessment following guidelines laid down by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).  The assessments are carried out by Dr Katie Adolphus, Clinical Psychologist or Dr. Sharon McKinnon, Clinical Psychologist and Sally Leung, Speech and Language Therapist all of whom have extensive experience and expertise in the field.  Please click on the ‘About Us’ link to find out more.

Noticing differences about your child’s development can be very concerning and working out what to do about it can be daunting.  Please do not hesitate to get in touch for a no-obligation conversation about your concerns and to find out whether our service is right for you. An Information Sheet detailing our Assessment Process is available – please contact our Admin Team on 01722 324343.
