About Dr Claire Scott

I have worked as a Consultant Community Paediatrician in the NHS since 2003, initially for Kingston Hospital NHS Trust and currently I work for Hounslow and Richmond NHS Community Health Trust. I have also worked privately since 2006.

I am qualified to perform Griffiths Developmental assessments and Diagnostic Interviews for Social Communication Disorders (DISCO), and ADOS assessments (Autistic Diagnostic Observation Schedule).

My private practise is dedicated to providing advice, assessment and diagnosis for children with developmental and behavioural difficulties, including speech and language delay, learning difficulties, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and social communication disorders (including the diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome and Autism).

I also help diagnose Developmental Co-ordination Disorder in conjunction with an occupational therapy assessment and other difficulties such as Sensory Processing Disorders. Many of my assessments are undertaken in conjunction with other professionals including speech therapists, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, and Educational Psychologists and I greatly value reports from other professionals such as schools.

I endeavour to provide guidance to ensure a child receives appropriate support to achieve their potential as well as maintaining their emotional well being, including advice on how to request effective educational provision and encourage effective multi - agency collaboration.

I see private patients at
BMI Coombe Wing, Kingston Hospital, Kingston Upon Thames KT2 7QB

I am registered with all the major insurance companies.


I am happy to facilitate referrals into the NHS via GPs.
