Issues with Post-Diagnostic Support for Deaf Adults

Dr Ben Holmes, Clinical Psychologist

Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation NHS Trust

The presentation described the main issues with post-diagnostic support for deaf adults with autism. These are mainly difficulties in secondary care services accepting a referral for a deaf adult with autism, and some big gaps between services.

There appear to be no specialised adult services designed for deaf adults with autism.
