Dr Ashley Francis, Clinical Psychologist

I'm a Clinical Psychologist based in Leicester, offering private autism and ADHD assessments in Leicester, Derby and Nottingham to children and adults. My expertise is in the areas of assessing and diagnosing autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I have undertaken further training in autism and ADHD, and am passionate about providing help to children, adults and families with neurodiversity.

I offer a full private autism and ADHD assessment service throughout Leicester, Derby and Nottingham, that is compliant with NHS NICE Guidelines. Alongside the autism private assessment and ADHD assessment, I also offer a full diagnostic report, which can be used to support applications for Educational Health Care Plans (EHCPs) for children in school.

Deciding to go ahead with a private autism assessment or ADHD assessment can be a difficult decision to make on your own. How are you supposed to know if that's the right thing? That's why
I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation to talk through yours or your child's difficulties and the reason for the autism private assessment. Following this conversation, I will be able to determine if a full private autism assessment and/or ADHD is the most suitable option, or if another approach may be better for you or your child.

"Our experience of an ASD assessment with Ash was lovely. Ash was friendly and put us at ease from the 1st consultation phone call and all the way through the assessment. The website is very clear and nothing is hidden from you. Our Son (aged 10) was very relaxed with Ash during the observation. In just the observation, Ash saw our son in the same way we did and that was very clear in the final report. Throughout the whole process, Ash kept us "in the loop" and again, we felt very part of the process and nothing hidden from us, as seen on his website. The final report is very detailed and clear. The whole process was completed within 3 weeks. We would highly recommend this service."
