Adult Neurodevelopmental Service

  

The Adult Neurodevelopmental service covers assessment, diagnosis and post-diagnostic support, in line with NICE guidance for Coventry and Warwickshire residents


The service, which will be delivered by CWPT, will provide a therapy led multi-disciplinary diagnostic assessment (including Developmental Dyspraxia screening), focused post-diagnostic support and signposting beyond the service.

The interventions will be primarily psycho-education (ASD, emotional regulation, communication and sensory processing) and via group and individual therapy where necessary.

Specialist interventions will be time limited and appropriate in meeting the needs of specific individuals with neuro-developmental disorders.
