N.B. discuss local funding pathways and process for independent diagnostic centres with your GP.

    Help for Psychology – Norwich
    Healthcare 4 Kids – Warwickshire

    Costs can vary between approximately £ 1000.00 – £3500.00, please contact these services directly for further information regarding costs, waiting times and their referral process.

    N.B. The PDA Society take considerable care to ensure the quality and experience of the services that we signpost to parents and professionals. However, the PDA Society are not making any recommendations nor is responsible for the quality, experience or the outcomes of assessments performed by independent services.
