MDT Services

The Sunflower Clinic has established a very experienced multi-disciplinary team (MDT) to provide an assessment and diagnostic service for children with suspected Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The MDT brings different therapeutic disciplines (Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Psychology) together to provide an international best practice standard for the assessment and diagnosis of Autism.

The Sunflower Clinic MDT has established a clinically recognised Assessment and Diagnostic pathway designed to provide a validated diagnosis of Autism.
