The following clinicians within our team have experience of Expert Witness work:
We can work within the areas below:
- Providing a psychological assessment of young people who have come into contact with the Criminal Justice System with Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or ADHD, specifically commenting upon ‘fitness to plead’ and ‘mens rea’.
- Undertaking capacity assessments for individuals with learning disability.
- Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team preparing reports for care proceedings cases.
In addition, both Dr Eaton and Dr Magness have experience of assessing individuals within the prison system, with a forensic history who are suspected of having an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Both also have worked within secure inpatient services and can provide consultation and advice in these settings.
