The Neurodevelopmental Service offers diagnostic assessment (for autism, ADHD, Tics and Tourette's) and also brief post-diagnostic support for adults living in Sussex.

We are a multi-disciplinary team who are committed to providing an inclusive service that celebrates neurodiversity. We benefit from close partnerships with experts by experience and also our Trust Neurodivergent staff network.

Our service is delivered by Specialist Practitioners and also has a weekly multidisciplinary clinic comprising of a Consultant Psychiatrist, Neuropsychiatrist, Consultant Psychologist and a Speech & Language Therapist. Peer support is offered to adults under 30 who have recently received a diagnosis of autism.

We have a strong culture of research and pioneering practice and have close links with Sussex University. We were recently successful in our bid for research funding and will soon be running a "Bendy Bodies" clinic exploring the relationship between hypermobility and neurodivergence.
