How to refer

If your referral is for Learning Disabilities (LD) and Tics and Tourette’s syndrome (TS) please complete a referral to the Single Point of Access (SPA).

If your referral is for Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC)  or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)  this is a 3 step process. Only Schools, GP’s and other professionals are permitted to make a referral for NLDS.

STEP ONE

As a professional working with the family you will coordinate the collection of referral information and make the referral. Complete the relevant ASC/ADHD referral form.

STEP TWO

Send out the additional information forms to school and family/carers relative to age and potential diagnosis. Request the information is returned to you (referrer).

Please be advised these forms can take between 30-40 minutes to complete

NOTE: additional ASC screening forms are sent AFTER a referral is made

STEP 3

Email the ASC/ADHD referral form and additional ASC/ADHD supporting information to:

nem-tr.kentchildrenandyoungpeoplehealthservices@nhs.net
