HOW THINGS WORK AT HEALIOS
Please note, Healios is a commissioned service, only and is therefore only available through the NHS.
Healios believes in therapy and assessments that are family-centric
We have designed our own interactive clinical portal to connect one of our clinicians to the patient and their family members. The beauty of our technology is that people can connect to the portal from any location and don't have to be in the same room or even the same country!
It also means that patients don't have to travel to see their therapist, struggle through traffic, wait in stark clinics and do it all again to get home.
Rather than adding to the anxiety, care through our portal puts the patient at ease and enhances engagement levels with the clinician. It's what we call the Healios Experience!

An Introduction to our Autism and ADHD Assessment Service
To ensure your online assessment is a success, you will need the following:
- A good internet connection
- A computer, laptop or large screen tablet
- IMPORTANT - We cannot carry out assessments via a smartphone
There are six steps in our process:
Step 1: Pre-assessment questionnaires
Step 2: Gathering school information
Step 3: Assessment Day 1
Session 1 - initial assessment.
This session is 1 hr long, and both you and your child will need to be present. We will ask you about your current issues and take some background history.
Session 2 - Observation and interaction session
This session is for your child and is also 1 hour long. We will undertake some fun activities and ask your child a few questions. Parents (carers or guardians) will be asked not to engage in this session.
During this session we will be asking your child to complete a task that involves a selection of objects. We ask that you prepare these objects, details will be found in your appointment email.
Step 4: Assessment Day 2
This session is for parents, guardians or carers, your child does not need to be present. During this session we will complete an ADI-r assessment, which is a developmental history assessment. This session can take up to 3 hours.
Details about early behaviour, including social and communication development, are crucial to gaining information to help make a diagnosis of autism. This information can sometimes be difficult to obtain, or for parents to remember accurately, therefore any information you may be able to find and bring with you to the appointment relating to your child’s early years (i.e. school reports, letters, assessments, photos or family videos) can be very helpful.
For various reasons, our sessions are always held in the morning. You may need to inform your child’s school and/or arrange time off work.
When it’s time to start your assessment process you will be EMAILED a link which guides you to activate your account, just click the link to activate your Healios account. After you have activated your account, you will receive a call asking about your availability before your sessions are booked.
Step 5: Diagnostic review
After we have gathered our assessment information our team will review whether your child meets the criteria for an autism diagnosis and will write your report.
Step 6: Feedback
When we have reached a conclusion, we will contact you to arrange a feedback session with you.
**Please note, we are a very busy service. If you cancel or do not attend your sessions you will have to wait a number of weeks before we can rearrange your appointment.
