Kent Community Paediatrics are a team of consultant paediatricians, specialist nurses and administrators who investigate, diagnose and help children with neurodevelopment disorders such as cerebral palsy, developmental delay, autistic spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and muscular dystrophy.
Your child can be referred under the following criteria, either by us or your GP;
- Developmental Delay/Impairment
- Physical Disability, g. Cerebral Palsy, Duchenne muscular dystrophy
- Assessment of children with suspected Autism/Asperger syndrome (a neurodevelopmental disorder) who are under 11 years of age*
- Assessment of children with suspected ADHD between 6 and 11 years of age*. In case of significant concerns raised by school and parents, we may be able to start the assessment process between 5 and 6 years of age. However, we do not usually commence treatment until the child is 6 years old
