Cost of Autism Diagnostic Assessment (Closed to Recruitment)
This study is hoping to identify how much it costs the NHS to assess a child for possible Autism Spectrum Disorder. In recent years there has been a big increase in referrals for possible autism/social communication difficulties, resulting in increasing waiting times to complete a diagnostic assessment in many centres.
This study aims to find out the amount of clinician time it takes to complete an assessment on a national basis.
This study has now closed to recruitment.
