Obtaining an adult clinical diagnosis of autism/Asperger syndrome can be expensive and/or involve a lengthy wait - NHS wait times can exceed 18 months and sometimes clinicians do not have extensive experience of the presentation of autistic adults.

Sarah Hendrickx provides autism diagnosis as an Associate of Axia-ASD at their clinic in Chester. Sarah is not a clinically qualified psychologist but has been trained and continues to be clinically supervised by Dr Linda Buchan at Axia-ASD. All diagnostic reports are reviewed and signed off by Dr Buchan.

Sarah is autistic herself and has worked with in excess of 300 autistic people (which Professor Tony Attwood recommends 100 as being a minimum requirement of anyone providing diagnostic assessments). Please see: http://www.asperger-training.com/sarah-hendrickx/ for details of Sarah’s credentials and experience. Sarah has particular expertise in the autism diagnosis of adult women.
