Exercise is good for you

New service on its way

A new specialist service for people aged over 16 with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) has been launched and is available thanks to partnership work between the CCG and the local authority.

The Sheffield Adult Autism and Neurodevelopmental Service (SAANS) provides assessment, diagnosis and multi-disciplinary interventions for people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (including disorders formerly known as Aspergers Syndrome) and associated neurodevelopmental disorders including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). 

The service is provided by a multidisciplinary team that comprises - psychiatry, clinical psychology, specialist nurse, occupational therapist, speech and language therapist and social worker – to provide additional support for people with ASC. 

The service is delivered by Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust, and more details can be found here.
