Organisation Name
National Autistic Society - Lorna Wing Centre for Autism
Description

The NAS Lorna Wing Centre for Autism is the first centre in the country to provide a complete diagnostic, assessment and advice service for children, adolescents and adults with social and communication disorders throughout the UK.

Originally known as the Centre for Social and Communication Disorders, it was set up by Judith Gould and Lorna Wing under the auspices of the National Autistic Society (NAS) in 1991. It was set up because parents of children with autism spectrum disorders and other related conditions often had major problems in finding a diagnosis and explanation for their childs strange behaviour.

Since the early days there has been increasing awareness of the need for diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders. Despite this, parents continue to have problems in obtaining a clear explanation of their childs difficulties.

The service offered at the Centre is a specialist diagnostic and assessment service for individuals with a complex presentation of difficulties. These are usually adolescents or adults and children with complex needs.
