Dr Stefan Studnik is consultant Paediatrician with long experience in autism, ADHD and other developmental problems based in St Marys Hospital, Paddington, London. He built up a multidisciplinary team for autism.
The service is designed to meet the recommendations of the National Autism plan. We are now able to diagnose autism earlier and helps families to access help sooner. Families routinely give feedback to the team and this is usually positive.
