About Dr Stefan Studnik

Dr Stefan Studnik is a consultant Paediatrician based in St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London, with extensive experience in autism, ADHD and other developmental problems.
He has built a multidisciplinary team for autism. The service is designed to meet the recommendations of the NICE guidelines/National Autism Plan. We are now able to diagnose autism earlier and help families to access help sooner. Families routinely give positive feedback to the team.
As part of this development, Dr Studnik also trained referrers in screening and early detection of autism and facilitated training for the multidisciplinary team in diagnostic tests.
The service works across boundaries to include child psychiatry, education social services and charities. Dr Stefan Studnik built up a quality network with other child development centres in West London to standardise the observation assessments (“ADOS”s). He also receives referrals for a second opinion and has regular clinics to see these children jointly with child psychiatrists.
Stefan Studnik is a Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer and is actively involved in undergraduate and postgraduate recruitment, teaching and examination.
