Dr Clare Dover

GMC No: 4546199

I am a Consultant Psychiatrist for Children with a Learning Disability within Newcastle and Gateshead Children and Young Peoples Service (CYPS).

This involves initial assessment, formulation and ongoing management of children with a learning disability, who present with psychiatric disorders and/or complex behavioural problems.

My role includes diagnosis and treatment of Anxiety, ADHD, Sleep Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other Neurodevelopmental Disorders.

I have a special interest in Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders, across the ability and age range.

I have particular skills in use of diagnostic tools- Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and ADI-R. I am a trainer in use of the ADOS and have coordinated and delivered training courses both locally and regionally.
