The Centre is purpose-built for children with autism and other disabilities.

With state-of-the-art facilities and an experienced team of clinical professionals, Caudwell Children can provide a rapid ASD diagnosis that is either 100% charity (criteria-dependant) or self-funded.

The Centre includes a mixture of quiet zones, specialist facilities, sensory rooms and garden, which allow our clinical team to develop a comprehensive profile for each child during their assessment.
