Please share your views on assessments for autistic spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder for children and young people aged 0-25 years

The Lancashire SEND Partnership want to improve the processes for assessment of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for 0-25 year olds in the local area. This follows on from the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) inspection carried out by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We would like to hear how you have found the process and your ideas on how things could be improved. Your views, along with those of staff who work with children and young people with SEND, and the children and young people themselves, will be used to develop the assessment pathway(s) for Lancashire & South Cumbria.
