(UK) Wales: More than 9,000 kids on waitlist for ASD/ADHD assessment

Mar 27, 2023, In Your Area: Urgent call for action on autism and ADHD assessment waiting times in Wales https://www.inyourarea.co.uk/news/urgent-call-for-action-on-autism-and-adhd-assessment-waiting-times-in-wales/

MORE SUPPORT NEEDED: Over 9,000 children are currently waiting for an autism or ADHD assessment

More than 9,000 children are currently waiting for an autism or ADHD assessment in Wales.

The Welsh government has said it is working to address gaps in support, as of the 9,014 children on the waiting list in Wales, more than a third - 3,331 - have been waiting for over a year.

Commenting on the waits for children needing an autism or ADHD assessment in Wales, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Mental Health, James Evans MS, said: “The wait children face for an autism or ADHD assessment can be extremely worrying for parents, with some parents not knowing what to do next. With more than 9,000 children currently waiting for an autism or ADHD assessment in Wales, it’s clear that this situation is not fair or acceptable for children and their loved ones.

“The Labour Government must take urgent action to address this waiting list, whilst ensuring children and their parents receive the support they deserve in an appropriate and timely manner.”
