Welcome to Autism Kent 

Welcome to Autism Kent. We are a small team of two clinical psychologists and a highly specialist speech and language therapist, based in Kent. We specialise in autism and ADHD assessments/post-diagnostic support for adults and young people. 

Autism Kent provides:

We realise that an assessment can be a daunting process, so please let us know if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to make the process more comfortable for you. 

If you are wondering whether an autism or ADHD assessment is right for you or if you do not require a formal diagnosis, as an alternative option we offer a neurodivergence consultation, whereby you will be sent a set of screening measures to complete and be asked to attend a consultation with one of our clinical psychologists. This consultation will include recommendations, which may indicate the need for a full diagnostic assessment, or may conclude that there is no real cause for concern. This option will help you weigh up the pros and cons of a full assessment. 

For face-to-face appointments we are in Whitstable, Kent, which is within easy reach of Canterbury, Faversham, Herne Bay, Maidstone, Medway, Ashford, Sittingbourne, Thanet, Dover and Deal. We also offer online consultations. Please contact us for further information or to arrange an initial consultation on 01227 656953 or at info@autismkent.co.uk

 

How could a diagnosis help?

  • It may help you, your family, friends, partner, employer and colleagues to understand why you experience particular difficulties, so that you can support yourself and they can help to support you. 
  • It may correct a previous misdiagnosis and mean that any mental health difficulties can be better addressed. 
  • It may help you to get access to appropriate services and benefits. 
  • You will be entitled to have reasonable adjustments made by your employer, college or university.
  • A diagnosis can help make sense of your life experiences, highlight your strengths, and improve self-worth. 
  • It may help you to be able to identify with other neurodivergent people and connect with people with similar experiences.
