At the Gesher Assessment Centre, we assess children and young people for autism, and other related conditions. You know your child better than anyone else; we are here to help you understand and overcome any concerns you might have about your child’s development.
The Gesher Assessment Centre has been made possible thanks to the Rosetrees Trust.
Why is Gesher’s assessment centre different?
We offer a unique model to ensure parents and caregivers are supported throughout the process.
With our online booking system we aim to reduce the stress and time involved to speak to a clinician. During the triage call we will explore your concerns and whether our assessment is the right pathway for you and your family.
Once we have agreed to continue on the assessment pathway, we will work with you to ensure the assessment, feedback and report are delivered in a timely manner whilst maintaining high clinical standards. Following your triage call there will be assessment slots available within the next 6 – 8 weeks.
Our formal report will be clear and concise with a focus on key recommendations to action for your child’s progress. We advocate for a neurodiversity affirming approach and as far as possible use neurodiversity positive language in our reports. Our post diagnostic support includes signposting, strategies and advice. Beyond assessment and feedback, we offer parent support groups that will be facilitated by our clinicians to offer a safe space for parents to meet and discuss their journey.
