Help for Psychology was set up by Dr Judy Eaton, a highly experienced consultant clinical psychologist, who specialises in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The core function of the organisation is to offer assessment, diagnosis and support to children, adults and their families affected by developmental difficulties. This focus is primarily in the areas of autism (including Asperger’s Syndrome), pathological demand avoidance and ADHD. We are also able to offer help and support to children and families, without developmental difficulties who are struggling with anxiety related problems or difficult behaviour.
Although the primary focus of the organisation is around psychological support, we also work closely with colleagues from other professions, such as Paediatrics, Psychiatry, Psychotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Occupational Therapy, to ensure that the holistic needs of children, adults and their families are met.
Our vision is to be recognised as a centre of excellence for Autism and Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) in East Anglia and surrounding counties.
Over the coming months we will also be introducing many more training courses, plus ASD and PDA related webinars and other online initiatives. Click the following links for an overview of our services and information on our fees.
In addition to assessment and diagnosis, we also run a range of related training courses, such as programmes aimed at both parents and teachers who are experiencing difficulties in managing children with pathological demand avoidance (PDA). Others courses are aimed at those working in the Criminal Justice System, to help with their understanding of the issues surrounding children and young adults who have autism and PDA.
