East Sussex and Brighton & Hove Neurodevelopmental Service

What we do

  • We are a multidisciplinary team who assess and diagnose Autism and ADHD and Tics and Tourette’s - referral is through your GP who must send the referral to your local Assessment and Treatment Service
  • Support colleagues in mental health services to assess and diagnose
  • Advice and signposting - given to all patients following assessment
  • We do not hold a caseload or care coordinate. We currently accept referrals for people registered with a GP in East Sussex
  • You are likely to be seen at our base which is at East Brighton Community Mental Health Centre

Post-diagnosis groups (Brighton & Hove only)

If you have been diagnosed with Autism in our service, we will invite you to a one-off group where we can signpost you to support options in Brighton & Hove. We will also give you information on our Autism and Identity Group and our Emotions Untangled group. These groups are co-facilitated by our Occupational Therapist and Experts by Experience (EBE's) who have used our service.

  • If you have been diagnosed with ADHD in our Brighton & Hove service, you may be offered a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for ADHD group
  • These groups are only open to people who have been through our diagnostic services so are not open to referral
