The Complex Neurodevelopmental Disorders Service (CNDS) is a specialist second opinion Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) service for children and young people. We provide diagnostic assessments where there is uncertainty around diagnosis. In addition we also provide consultation and management advice to local services concerning children and young people who already have an existing ASD diagnosis.
We accept referrals from local Child and Adolescent mental health services and Child Health/Paediatric Services. Your child’s case must be open to one of these services for the duration of their assessment/consultation with CNDS. Unfortunately we cannot accept referrals directly from parents or from GP/health visiting services.
