DR ADRIAN EDWARDS
Specialist in neurodevelopmental conditions
such as Autism & ADHD
I am Dr Adrian Edwards, a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. My associates and I have worked in the NHS for over ten years, we now work primarily with those with neurodevelopmental difficulties such as Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We have gathered experience with a varied client group, across the lifespan, supporting children, adolescents (and their families) and adults with, or exploring a diagnosis of, an ASC or ADHD. We have developed particular expertise in assessing females with a possible ASC.
