About me

The Autism Assessment Centre is run by a small, friendly and compassionate team.  

As the mother of a neurodivergent child, our lead clinician Dr Faye Millner draws from her personal journey and intimately understands the emotions and challenges families face during the assessment and diagnostic process. This insight has strongly influenced her professional practice.

Our commitment is to provide a service that prioritises transparency and emotional support right from the outset. We believe in creating an environment that fosters a sense of security and understanding. This approach not only eases the journey for both the individual and their family but also lays the foundation for a comprehensive and accurate diagnostic report.

We also offer post-diagnostic support, ADHD assessments, therapy and cognitive assessments.

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
