A COMPASSIONATE TEAM WITH LIVED EXPERIENCE OF NEURODIVERSITY, DELIVERING SPECIALIST ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT FOR CONDITIONS OF NEURODEVELOPMENT.
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
A WHOLE SPECTRUM APPROACH TO
While one person might fulfil the criteria for Autism, it is true that they are also likely to show strength and difficulty in other areas of brain function. There is a lot of crossover between diagnostic profiles when it comes to neurodevelopmental conditions, but few services consider each aspect under one roof. We are uniquely skilled in the assessment and profiling of peoples strength and difficulty across the full spectrum. This involves considering how people interact socially - through to how they sustain attention and focus concentration, understand math concepts, use their motor skill and coordination, and indeed read, write and spell.
FOR THOSE ACROSS THE LIFESPAN
We know that neurodevelopmental differences can cause difficulty for people and their family way beyond early childhood. We provide services in this context for people of all ages across their life - right from pre-school, through to work, adult relationship and retirement.
EVIDENCE-BASED & HOLISTIC
We believe that our patients and their families should receive the most effective, robust, and safe clinical care. This is why our team encapsulates clinicians from a range of disciplines, each who can work in collaboration with those accessing service to ensure the whole of their wellbeing is considered. This will provide the best opportunity to help make life more manageable and it is undeniable that it is something often scarcely offered. Every clinician will always be working in strict adherence to the relevant clinical guidance- this is at the forefront of how the team work (e.g., DSM-V, NICE Guidelines, European Consensus Statement).
LEARN WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
"Words cannot express the gratitude we feel towards those at Neurospectrum. The person centred care and compassion our family have received has been truly heart-warming. Throughout the whole process the support we have received has been exceptional. Although this has been a challenging journey for our family, we have come through the other side feeling hopeful and optimistic at discovering our child's many strengths, as well as learning about their difficulties. We have been equipped with personalised recommendations and strategies to support our child, leaving us feeling empowered. Dr Jake and his dedicated team are brilliant and we cannot thank them enough. Without their expertise, support and encouragement on all levels, this could have been a long and frustrating journey for us all. "
