Caudwell Children provides a multi-disciplinary diagnostic assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorder at its Caudwell Children’s International Centre in Staffordshire.
The Centre is purpose-built for children with autism and other disabilities. Since its 2018 launch, Caudwell Children have been offering a multi-disciplinary autism assessment and diagnosis for young children between the ages of 4 and 11. 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 autism assessments take place at the Caudwell Children’s International Centre, which is designed to provide a ‘Calm’ and ‘Peaceful’ experience to the child and the family during each visit.
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.
