The BDA have changed the way we operate our diagnostic assessment service. We have set up a new service for self-funded assessments and now hold a BDA Approved Assessors list.

For each successful referral the BDA will charge you £120 including VAT. You provide your own biography that we send to the client, this is where you list your assessment fee. This must include the BDA £120 referral fee.

Please complete and return the application form and include the following information:

  • APC (HCPC for psychologists)
  • AMBDA (in some circumstances other professional memberships may be acceptable)
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance
  • DBS (within the last 3 years) or details of the update service along with your D of B
