Expertise in assessing children suspected to have developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, dyspraxia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and/or any other associated learning disability.


Graduated from Karnatak University, India in 1990 before going on to complete Paediatric Training in the Oxford Region, obtaining his MRCP (UK) in 1996. During his training, Dr Mallya went on to complete a Masters Degree in Community Paediatrics from the University College, London. Currently he is a Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and is also a Royal College Examiner.


He offers assessments for autism that are comprehensive and include standardised tools such as the 3Di interview and the ADOS. He works closely with schools and therapy colleagues to arrive at a complete set of recommendations which will address the strengths and needs of the child.


Having worked as a Consultant Paediatrician in the NHS since 2004, Dr Mallya, is involved in postgraduate medical teaching to trainees, GPs, Health Visitors and school nurses.


“I find developmental and behavioural paediatrics a learning and humbling experience at the same time. The satisfaction of supporting children and families with complex neurodevelopmental difficulties to realise their academic and social potential continues to drive me forward.”
