The Neurodevelopmental Pathway is a specialist service responsible for the assessment of neurodevelopmental conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Referrals for an ADHD assessment for children will be considered from the age of five and a half years.

The Specialist Health services include: Paediatricians, Clinical Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy, Specialist ND Nurses and CAMHS, which are provided by three different NHS Trusts: Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust (DCHFT), University Hospitals of Derby and Burton (UHDB) and Derbyshire Community Health Services (DCHS).  Learn more by viewing our neurodevelopmental pathway leaflet and our journey plan. There is also a glossary explaining the agencies and teams involved in the pathway.
