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 neuro-diverse 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

Make a referral to the Neurodevelopmental Service

We are now accepting referrals to the Neurodevelopmental Service via the below referral forms.

If you prefer, you can also download the 'details of observations' sections for each form separately. This allows other individuals to complete their own sections. All sections of the form must be sent to the team by the referrer. 

Please note: we will not accept self-referrals.
