Our Autism Diagnostic Service provides assessments to identify if a person has autism or not. We have a youth team who provide assessments for young people between the ages of 11 and 18. We have an adult team who provide assessments for those aged 18 and over. If we diagnose somebody with autism, we offer advice and short term limited support to help them, and their family, to understand their diagnosis. Our team will explore ways that might help manage difficulties or challenges faced at home, work or in education.

This service provides intensive support within the community to Children and Young people (under 18s) within all of Norfolk and Suffolk. The team have been aim to support Children and Young People (CYP) under the age of 18. The aim of this new pilot team and the wider system is to prevent CYP from having inpatient admissions, and to support Service Users and their families in the community, within Norfolk and Suffolk. The team will serve as a gateway in and out of Tier 4 (T4) provision, so CYP will be able to access T4 provision / support without the need for admission. This is a significant change in both the clinical offer and culture. CATAT are trialling a intensive home treatment/post discharge support as evidence shows that children and young people in the first 5-7 days post discharge may be more likely to re-engage in risk behaviours, which can potentially result in a re-admission or attendance at an acute hospital. With this in mind CATAT are looking at it as a preventative rather than a reactive intervention to enable admission avoidance. Using the Ambit & Thrive model, this adds to the total offer and supports stabilisation of the system, around the child.
