Leicestershire ASD Diagnostic Pathway
The Leicestershire Autism Reference Group have produced and circulated this guidance to Education, Social and Health services. The purpose of the guidance is to describe expected practice in relation to children whose needs may fall on the autism spectrum. It focuses particularly on the importance of joint working among professionals when an autism spectrum disorder is suspected. All relevant agencies in Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland, which employ professionals involved in making a diagnosis of autism have agreed that this protocol will be followed.
