It was worth it. Ds does score way above ASD criteria and could be plonked into aspergers profile. But he's not strictly meeting criteria.

I knew it! I knew it from the off with him.

So he's hasn't got ASD as although he's scoring high he's missing traits.

But her report ties up every report I have had done on him.

Maybe one day we might be going back if he struggles at secondary.

I think this is a child who needs to be a specialist language school but I don't know where to start with that fight.

Glad things became clear in the report 2boys, its a shame she didnt dx him but its also good that she does stick to the criteria!!

I suppose thats where the Atypical autism diagnosis or PDDNOS comes in handy but then noone knows what they are or how to help anyway so it makes them a waste of time!

How old is your son?

She said that strictly speaking in her professional opinion she can't dx him with asd and that's fine with me. She said it won't benefit him.

I'm just glad some one listened and really looked at him as a whole person. Shame I had to pay for it!

He's seven

He's severely dyspraxic I think she said? I have just spent two hours shouting at DH - can think straight now. Been a hard day. No one has ever committed to how bad his dyspraxia is before.

I opened the car door for him yesterday and he fell onto the pavement!

I could do with with checking out from reality for today

I have my indi EP and SLT report to read yet. Putting that off.

I don't know what to do next. Ds does seem quite spikey and doesn't really fit anywhere. Going to have a real think about what way to take my appeal.

2boys Sorry you didn't get a diagnosis, though it would have been unhelpful to have got one without actually having the condition iyswim.

Language units are imo very good at getting to the bottom of an issue and knowing next what to do about them, but they are SO slow and doing it. That is why in the end we pulled ds out of what was a good school.

I felt they really understood his needs and were addressing them, but he was falling further and further behind at the pace they wanted to go and I didn't feel it was merited.

Where are you? Schools like Egerton Rothsey, Riverstone, Abingdon, More House etc. are good for that kind of profiles perhaps, in the kind of London-ish area,

2boys out of interest how long did the report take? I saw DK today and forgot to ask how long the report would take.

Sorry you didn't get the diagnosis, but as pp said it wouldn't have been beneficial to receive it if he hasn't got it.

Did she diagnose the dyspraxia? Hopefully with that now he can get some help and support with it.
