How long will I have to wait for a referral?

From the point of a referral being received, it can take up to 12 months for the entire assessment process. Following this, an appointment will be offered. 

Please note your child is being assessed for ADHD so there is no surety that they will have an ADHD diagnosis. 

Who can refer my child for ADHD assessment?

GP, schools, any other professional. Referrals will not be accepted by parents/carers.
