Assessment pathway for Autism and ADHD

Part of our ongoing work around the Autism and ADHD pathways in Somerset to provide a more standardised, easily accessible and whole system-wide approach.

Introduction

The pre-assessment pathway documents for Autism and ADHD can be found on this page. These documents have been developed in collaboration with education, health and care colleagues as well as parent carers, children and young people (CYP). They have  been developed to support education settings, practitioners, and parent carers so that everyone better understands the pre-assessment pathway.

If compelling evidence is gathered that indicates a child or young person may have either Autism and/or ADHD a ‘Next Steps – Autism and ADHD Pathway’ form should be completed to request an assessment for Autism and/or ADHD.

All schools and FE Colleges are invited to participate in the Test and Learn pilot (which has now been extended to the end of September 2021) and request an assessment for Autism / ADHD if there is compelling evidence to do so. The guidance of how to complete this process is within the document titled: Autism and ADHD Pre-assessment Pathway.

Please only use the documents located on the Local Offer site, earlier versions of these documents should be discarded and not used. Work is being done to ensure that our Autism and ADHD pathways are standardised, easily accessible and co-produced. So that we can provide a system-wide approach for children and young people in the county. These documents will be reviewed and updated, periodically.

If you have any questions about the pathway or the documents on this page, please email: AutismADHDPreassessmentPathway@somerset.gov.uk
