Diagnosis Referrals


The process of getting an Autism diagnosis in Tameside:
 
  1. Make an appointment with your GP or complete the self-referral form (below) and return it to the Autism Specialist Nurse team. 
  2. Explain to your GP, or on the form, why you think you have autism. 
  3. During the initial assessment you can attend on your own or with a family member/partner.
  4. The initial assessment can be carried out in your own home, or at the clinic. It involves a series of questions which gather information about yourself. Questions will focus on background information e.g. from childhood, school, work and relationships.
  5. After the initial assessment the team will decide if you need a full assessment.
