Our neurodevelopmental service provides information, advice, guidance and treatment for children, young people and their families where needs are present and causing concern. The service focuses on conditions such as Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
What we do
We work closely with colleagues in health, education and social services to ensure children, young people, parents and carers receive appropriate advice and support. Our team of expert staff provide:
- Support in developing a shared understanding of needs
- Advice and consultation to improve behaviour management
- Brief and intensive treatment and support
- Assessment and diagnosis for ASC/ADHD and other related difficulties
- Support to the professional network around risk
When a young person reaches 18 he or she may move into adult services and we will support the transition.
You can also contact Surrey Local Offer, the online hub for 0-25 year olds (and their families) with special educational needs or a disability.
We accept requests for support (referrals) from health, social care and education practitioners such as GPs and teachers. This ensures that every child or young person is in contact with the right service and receives appropriate treatment and support.

We are open 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12pm Saturday. The service is not open on bank holidays.
All children and young people need to be registered with a GP in Surrey. We advise that requests for support are best made through schools as the behaviour and needs seen within school and home environments provide important insights which help us to support you.
More information is available on our Making a request for support web page.
