Autism Services from The Practice | mK

Assessment & Diagnosis

At The Practice | MK our Principal Psychologist, Katherine Goodsell has gained years of experience of assessing and diagnosing autism and autism spectrum disorder for both adults and children in private and NHS settings.

Together with The Practice MK, Katherine has developed a leading diagnostic assessment service that can deliver full diagnostic assessments and provide comprehensive reports within 6 weeks of your assessment.  Our reports can be useful in a number of ways.

  • Identify interventions and strategies to help you, your family, school or work place
  • Provide schools with recommendations on how a diagnosis of autism or ASD may effect a child's ability to access the curriculum
  • Identify local services that may help provide further support
