At the Sloane Court Clinic we have a psychiatrist with specialist experience and expertise in the diagnosis and management of adult individuals with autistic spectrum disorders such as Asperger’s syndrome, High Functioning Autism and Childhood Autism.
The clinic’s main aims are to provide expert authoritative diagnosis for individuals presenting with symptoms suggestive of autistic spectrum disorder such as communication difficulties, social awkwardness, problems keeping time, and problems with emotional control. Care is taken in differential diagnosis with conditions such as social phobia, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and personality difficulties. General advice can be given on management interventions.

The Adult Autistic Spectrum Disorder Clinic is led by Professor Marco Catani, consultant psychiatrist, and where appropriate management is provided in conjunction with other members of the clinical psychiatry and clinical psychology team.
