Does anyone know where best to go for a PDA assessment for a young adult?  The young peron was previously diagnosed ADHD as a child in an area where it has historically been almost impossible to get an ASD DX.  I'm posting on behalf of another parent who thinks PDA is a good fit, and having met the young person I would agree that it's an avenue that should be explored.

I would suggest you contact the Elizabeth Newson Centre ask them IP. Their professionals work with pupils in Sutherland House too and we only had positive experiences with every one we met. I'm not sure whether there is an upper age limit but of course Jack was there until he was 19 and so a young adult. Hope this helps


No idea why the link isn't posting, I'll tryagain

Thanks.  I'd looked at the site, but wasn't sure how old they went.  I'll pass it on.
