Private assessment for ASD anyone?

I realise the local LEAs do their own assessments/diagnosis', but what if you're prepared to look further afield (out of your LEAs zone) for your child's education??

I'm thinking a private assessment (for ASD DS, 13) with someone who has a good coverage of schools/LEAs (whether mainstream/special/public/private) would be able to point us in the right direction (without bias).

Am I wrong? Has anyone had a private assessment?

Hoping someone can help and many thanks for any responses!
