The Umbrella Pathway (Neuro-Developmental Assessment) has been developed to provide an assessment, management and care process for all children and young people presenting with neuro-developmental disorders which may be due to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum conditions and other difficulties such as developmental co-ordination difficulties, sensory processing and ‘tic’ disorders.
The pathway provides a multidisciplinary and multi-professional service with a clear entry point, an assessment process, diagnostic pathway and management plans and support for children and young people both those receiving a diagnosis at the end of the assessment process and those where no specific diagnosis is reached but a care plan and on-going support is recommended.
The Umbrella Pathway replaces the CASBAT and the BAP (behaviour assessment pathway for children and young people who may have ADHD) pathways.
