I seem to be lucky enough to have a choice between 2 very good ed psychs to assist with assessment for refusal to assess that I am coercing any day soon.

I have heard good stuff about both, John is an associate of Ruth Birnbaum.

Anyone used either of these guys and can give me their thoughts.

Thank you

David Urani was great - he is extremly knowledgeable about ASD and gave us great advice both on and off the record.

John isn't an autism specialist, but might be OK for a refusal to assess.
