AUTISM AND ADHD ASSESSMENTS
On 1 January 2021, I moved to a "flat-fee" approach to autism and ADHD assessments (previously I charged an hourly rate for all aspects of assessment and report preparation). I took this decision following consultation with neurodivergent indivdiuals who indicated that the increased certainty would reduce anxiety about the process. The fees I have settled on are based on an average of the actual total cost of assessments over the past 2 years.
However, I am keen to be able to maintain flexibility in how I practice. If, for example, both you and I agree very early on in the process not to continue, or to shift our focus from assessment to psychological therapy, you will only be charged for work undertaken up to that point (at my hourly rate of £110 per hour).
Screening for diagnostic assessments (including brief feedback) - £25
Autism diagnostic assessments (assessment plus comprehensive report)- £1500
ADHD diagnostic assessments (assessment plus comprehensive report) - £1200
Any other reports or additional work (requested by you, e.g. letters of support and interviews required to gather such additional information) - £110 per hour or part thereof (to nearest 15 minutes)
Room rental - cost will be passed on if any assessment interviews take place in a physical location (usually approximatey £10-£12 per hour, depending on location)
Psychological therapy sessions (60 minutes including time to arrange further appointments etc.) are charged at my standard rate of £110 per hour.
Travel time for therapy appointments, if applicable, is charged at half the standard rate plus travel costs.
Room rental - cost will be passed on if any sessions take place in a physical location (usually approximatey £10-£12 per hour, depending on location) .
