Please complete this form if you think that your child may have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It will take around 20 minutes of your time so please ensure you set aside this time in advance.
On Completion. We will assess the likelihood of ASD and book you and your child for a GP consultation. There are two outcomes:
- We do not think your child has ASD and we may give other advice.
- We think your child is likely to have ASD. We will refer you to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). Unfortunately there is currently a waiting list for this specialty of around 2 years. In the meantime it is recommended you read the
CAMHS Self-Help Information Pack (ASD info is at the bottom of it)
The Form. Made up of THREE sections:
- The Child’s Details
- School Report / Assessment*
- The Child’s Symptoms
*School reports are very helpful in the assessment and referrals benefit from having these included. Please have these to hand to upload into this form or hand them into the practice afterwards for us to copy and upload.
This review works well on mobile but it is easier on a computer.
CAMHS will only accept referrals for children who have already had their problems discussed and assessed at school and had any available input from Speech and Language Therapists or Educational Psychologists.
CAMHS does not consider ASD referrals for children who use alcohol or drugs.
SCHOOL REPORT / ASSESSMENT
Please upload any school reports or assessments that have been done and you feel would be useful to CAMHS.
YOUR CHILD’S SYMPTOMS
Children with ASD have significant and pervasive difficulties in social interaction and understanding, social communication, inflexibility of thinking and repetitive behaviours/interests.
