The Learning Assessment and Neurocare Centre (LANC) is an independent, multi-disciplinary clinic in Upper Harley Street (Brunswick Place), London and Horsham, West Sussex. It specialises in the management of children, adolescents, and adults with complex neurodevelopmental difficulties, especially ADHD and related conditions including Asperger's syndrome, specific learning difficulties, dyslexia, Tourette syndrome, and emotional and behavioural problems. As many of these conditions interact and overlap, there is a great deal of emphasis placed on careful evaluation and subsequent liaison with schools and other involved organisations.
History of Learning Assessment and Neurocare Centre
The Learning Assessment and Neurocare Centre was
established in 1993, largely out of concern at that time, at the
extreme lack of appropriate service provision for the assessment and
management of children with complex neurodevelopmental
difficulties. Over the past 17 years the centre has seen more than 6000
people with these conditions, sees up to 240 new patients annually from
all over the country and overseas, and has about 1600 patients on its
active long-term clinical management list. The centre has developed a
local and also a national reputation for being able to assess children, adolescents, and adults with suspected neurodevelopmental difficulties
in an experienced and comprehensive way. Whilst it sees people with the
more straightforward problems, it also has a great deal of expertise in
the assessment and management of people with complex difficulties.
