Adult Autism Service (Tower Hamlets)
The Tower Hamlets Autism Service is a diagnostic and brief intervention service for adults living in Tower Hamlets. We provide assessments and diagnoses of autism spectrum conditions.
Following a diagnosis, the service provides up to 12 autism-specific interventions which include support for any difficulties being experienced. The multi-disciplinary team, which includes a consultant psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, occupational therapist, speech and language therapist, and a social worker will work with the service user to develop a programme to address any issues or problems.
The team has a partnership with the Job Enterprise and Training Service (JET) and can provide support and advice for service users with autism, who wish to gain employment or access training.
The service accepts self-referrals and referrals from GPs and other agencies.
To refer yourself or someone you care for, call 020 3487 1312 or download the following forms, complete them and email them to: elt-tr.Tower-Hamlets-Autism-Service@nhs.net.
One of the forms requires a parent or guardian to provide a developmental history. It is an important part of our assessment as autism is a neuro-developmental condition, without this an assessment can be inconclusive. If it is not possible for you to get this form completed, please contact our service to discuss further. If you can provide any other collateral from childhood, such as school or medical reports, these can be helpful. We might also ask for collateral from another family member, or a longstanding friend or partner.
