This is not an exhaustive list; please enquire about support for other specific difficulties and specialist assessments offered.

Specialist assessments

Dr Bateman's specialist area is the assessment and management of neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism and ADHD, including those with intellectual disabilities. She offers comprehensive, specialist neurodevelopmental assessments using gold standard tools, followed by a post diagnostic package of care including psycho-education and advice, medicine prescribing if appropriate and recommendations regarding psychological treatments as appropriate.

Her clinical assessment reports provide a profile of the young person alongside any diagnoses that can follow the child into their educational and social settings, improving access to appropriate support. During the assessment, other mental health issues may come to light such as anxiety, low mood, tics and obsessional behaviours. She can offer treatments for these difficulties as needed.

Specialist assessments: may be recommended following initial assessment if indicated.

ASC assessments involve the use of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and 3Di computerised autism parent questionnaire in addition to gathering information from schools/colleges. Cognitive assessment* may be indicated/recommended in addition to the autism assessment.

ADHD assessment involves the use of Connor’s ADHD questionnaires and a detailed history from parents and schools/colleges. Cognitive assessment* may also be indicated/recommended.

School observations can also be carried out if indicated.

*Cognitive assessment would be carried out by another clinician, to whom she can refer to. Charged separately.


Dr Bateman studied Medicine at Manchester University and gained her Batchelor of Medicine degree and Bachelor of Surgery MBChB in 1997. Having worked for several years in Manchester, she worked in Australia for three years in A&E, paediatrics, rural medicine and psychiatry. On her return to the UK, Dr Bateman completed seven years of psychiatry and specialist higher child and adolescent psychiatry training on the Great Ormond Street/Royal London scheme and gained membership of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. 

I am an approachable, personable consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist with expertise in treating emotional and behavioural difficulties and mental illness in young people. This includes the prescription of medicines if necessary. I am passionate about improving the lives of young people and families experiencing difficulties and I see children (including under 5s) and adolescents up to the age of 18 years.

I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential and have this recognised. Thorough clinical assessment is key in determining a young person’s strengths and weaknesses and I am able to provide timely access to such assessment in a confidential and relaxed environment. My approach is down to earth, practical and solution focused; as a mother of three children, I am very aware of how important the relationship is with the referred young person and DI spend considerable time understanding issues from several points of view.
