Fees for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Assessments

Fees vary depending on the age of the child/young person and the specific requirements of each assessment. Below is a general guide, dependant on age, for our multidisciplinary NICE guidance compliant autism assessments.

  • £1,840 for children under the age of 6 years at the time of assessment
  • £1,960 for children over the age of 6 years and under the age of 16 years and 11 months at the time of assessment
  • £1,900 for young people over the age of 16 years and 11 months at the time of assessment

Please note that having an assessment for autism does not always lead to a diagnosis of autism.

Policy Excess & Policy Lapse

If there is an excess on your policy, you are liable to pay that after the first session.

Should your policy lapse during treatment you will be liable to pay for the remaining sessions.

Cancellation Policy

We require 48 hours’ notice to cancel a session. Where there is less notice, or you fail to attend your appointment, the full fee for that session will be incurred.

Most Private Medical Insurance does not cover non attended or late notice cancellation fees so please check with your insurer as you may be liable to pay the full amount of the session.

Dr Catherine Lawrence will endeavour to give you as much advance notice as possible for holidays or of any need to cancel a future appointment.

Confidentiality of Online Sessions

We do not allow for you to record sessions without prior consent.  Dr Catherine Lawrence will not be recording any of your sessions unless she has prior consent from you and this has been discussed and agreed and you have signed a consent form. 

We do not consent to you letting anyone else listen in to any part of the online session (via phone or any other technical device or in person) without prior agreement with us.


Please note that we are unable to respond in an emergency situation. If you need support in an emergency then please contact your GP, the emergency services, or duty social worker for immediate advice and support.

Mental health telephone support is available from the Samaritans on 116 123.
