Our bespoke, state-of-the-art new clinic has been designed specifically to meet the needs of children with autism spectrum disorder. Families were involved in focus groups to make sure their needs were built into the design.
The clinic features custom-built seating in the reception including cubby holes for children to immerse themselves in as well as multiple charging stations for devices. A creche and parent room were important additions to provide specialised supervision of children during parent training or discussions, along with a break-out area to feed and change children as required.
Safety was a high priority with many curved surfaces and hazards out of reach. The clinic has a contemporary and calming feeling with natural tones and patterns, making it an environment that is sensitive to the sensory needs of children.
Our clinic also features a paediatric phlebotomy and advanced investigation room where some of our research assessments are carried out.
