Embracing Complexity, a group of 38 neurodevelopmental charities led by Autistica, has released a new report on diagnosis. The report showcases four local services which aim to assess and diagnose multiple neurodevelopmental conditions (NDCs) as part of one 'diagnosis pathway'.
A diagnosis pathway describes how local services, appointments and health professionals are organised to assess whether someone has a condition.
Some services across the UK are starting to diagnose multiple NDCs as part of a single assessment process. We highlight some in this report.
We hope that this report will help Government and healthcare providers to think about different ways of working that could speed up diagnosis, save money and get people the support they need faster.
