What Our Clients Think
After being assessed by the NHS for Autism, I was told I was more likely to be ADHD. This was after a 90 minute assessment, which I found to be less than thorough.
I then approached one of the founders of SWAN ( Scottish Women's Autism Network ) for advice in regards to my less than satisfactory assessment.
I was given a recommendation of Dr. Claire Evans-Williams from The Autism Academy, and I promptly emailed her and told her of my situation and assessment. Initially we emailed one another as I asked her many question in regards to her interest, experience and diagnostic testing methods.
We then agreed to a time and date for the assessment.
Claire was very polite and not overly formal and put me to rest as we began the assessment. She was very patient and took time to explain what certain questions actually meant, and took time to really listen to what I wanted to say without trying to rush me. Her methods were very thorough but not overwhelming and I found the whole experience much less stressful than I previously thought it might be.
Once the assessment was done, Claire took the time to explain her findings with me and help me make sense of it, which was greatly appreciated.
Once I received the full written report we discussed it on the telephone, which once again Claire took the time to discuss with me in detail, and answered my many questions to my satisfaction.
I would 100% recommend Claire as far as she is very knowledgeable and and passionate about her work. And I find myself in a much better place because of her, with a better idea on how to overcome obstacles and improve any areas of my life that may need improving.
