Young girl speaking to a staff member of the Neurodevelopmental Service

The Neurodevelopmental Service takes referrals for children and young people in North East Lincolnshire who require a specialist autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) assessment.

The service replaces the North East Lincolnshire Access Pathway. The Access Pathway was transferred to Navigo as part of plans to reduce waiting times and streamline children and young people’s mental health services.

The Neurodevelopmental Service team offer assessments to determine whether a child or young person has a neurodevelopmental presentation that meets the criteria for neurodiverse conditions such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or ADHD. The team includes:

  • child and adolescent psychiatrists
  • clinical psychologists
  • learning disability nurses
  • speech and language therapists
  • a paediatrician
