Autism Service Norfolk is an NHS employed service funded by Norfolk County Council. It provides a gateway for diagnosis of adults 18+ with suspected Autism without a learning disability. It is also able to provide some pre and post diagnostic support around the diagnosis. Autism service Norfolk does not provide any mental health or social care support or management.

Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are characterised by:

  • impairments in the quality of a person’s social interaction
  • the quality of their social communication
  • evidence of repetitive routines and rituals and all-absorbing narrow interests
  • motor clumsiness and sensory issues

Difficulties in these areas have to be present through-out their life-span.
