Private ASD Testing For Children in Birmingham

Home > Mental Health > Private ASD Testing For Children in Birmingham

Our private paediatric ASD clinic in Birmingham offers professional autism testing for children. At Midland Health, we can provide your child with a comprehensive diagnosis through our ASD testing, led by specialist paediatricians who specialise in neurodevelopment. Upon a confirmed diagnosis, we are also able to offer options for treating and managing any symptoms associated with autism spectrum disorder, including for children with Asperger’s syndrome.

It all starts with an initial consultation between you, your child, and our experienced paediatric neurodevelopment specialist. From here, our team will be able to offer ASD testing in the options of ADOS and ADIR assessments. They will continue to work closely with your child through follow-up appointments and medical treatments, offering psychological support throughout.

How Our Paediatric ASD Team Can Help

At Midland Health, we provide ourselves on providing a comprehensive ASD service centring around reliable paediatric ASD assessments by professional specialists. Another focus of ours is the management of ASD cases, including support for the child’s parents and time with a speech and language  therapist.

Our ASD Diagnostic Assessments

Arranging a paediatric ASD assessment at our private clinic in Birmingham, your child will be considered across multiple encounters. Whether your child is showing signs of ASD or another psychological disorder is carefully considered by our expert’s wealth of experience, using an ADOS assessment and an ADIR interview.

Part One: ADOS Assessment 

An initial hour meeting will be arranged to carry out an Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS assessment). This session is semi-structured and takes place to observe your child’s interactions with their family and toys. It is a standardised assessment used to give an ASD professional insight into your child’s social interaction, imaginative play and communication skills.

Part Two: ADIR Interview

Next comes the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADIR). Before this interview takes place with another ASD specialist, additional information will need to be provided, including your child’s school report. An interview can then be carried out with the child’s parents.

Once both the ADOS assessment and ADIR interview have taken place, a follow-up consultation will be scheduled. All confirmed autism diagnoses are backed up by continuous performance tests that allow objective and reliable data to be collected. These results act as a baseline metric in order to assess your child’s ASD symptoms. If ASD is identified, our paediatric ASD experts will be able to use their observations to help provide you with the next steps in managing and treating your child’s ASD. 

Meet Our Paediatric ASD Team

Our private ASD clinic for children is under the expert guidance of Dr Ahmad Aurakzai, a Consultant Neurodevelopmental Paediatrician. Alongside we have Sarah Barker, our dedicated paediatric speech and language therapist. With such a wealth of experience and a detailed understanding of the nuances of autism spectrum disorders within children, they are able to accurately assess your child for a reliable diagnosis. 

In addition, our paediatric ASD team understands the emotional stress this process can put on a family. That is why they will also offer support to you during this time, ensuring you understand all the necessary steps and what’s coming next for your child after a diagnosis. With Midland Health’s private ASD clinic, you won’t be alone.

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD): The Symptoms

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) present a wide range of symptoms that are explained by an even broader diagnostic category. These conditions can be categorised under the umbrella of pervasive developmental disorders, affecting your child’s neurodevelopment and lasting throughout their adult life. ASD occurs due to differences in the brain that trigger developmental disabilities. Some of which can have negative impacts on your child’s developmental ability, behaviour and social skills.

If your child receives a confirmed ASD diagnosis, they may have one of the following lifelong conditions:

  • Autistic Disorder
  • Asperger Syndrome
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder
  • NOS Autism (Not Otherwise Specified)

You may feel the need to arrange a private ASD assessment if your child is demonstrating difficulty communicating, expresses anxious behaviour in unfamiliar environments, displays repetitive habits and behaviours, or seems to struggle with new information.
