Wiltshire Autism Diagnostic Service

Who are we?

The Wiltshire Autism Diagnostic Services is a small multidisciplinary team providing an autism spectrum condition (ASC) assessment service to adults with a Wiltshire GP. We are able to offer a limited amount of post diagnostic support which is mainly to help people with an ASC to learn about the condition and to access a range of appropriate mainstream services.

The team currently consists of an Occupational Therapist/team manager, registered nurses and administrative staff.

What do we do?

The team offers:
Direct work

  • Direct diagnostic assessments for individuals referred by their GP 
  • Direct diagnostic assessments for individuals referred through secondary care mental health services
  • Post-diagnostic support - psycho-education, coping strategies & signposting.
  • Encouraging parents/carers/partners and other family members to be involved in the assessment process where appropriate and agreed

Indirect work

  • Jointly assessing for an autism diagnosis with mental health and learning disability clinical staff.

We do not hold a caseload or care coordinate, and are currently only able to accept referrals for people registered with a Wiltshire GP.
