Hi.

I should've asked this when I posted the other day, but forgot.

In a nutshell...My son had his first appointment with a Community Paediatrician mid Dec in regards mine and my husband's concerns as to whether he could be on the Autistic Spectrum.

The Paediatrician was great and although we are taking a six month wait and watch approach...Should I have received a summary of the appointment in the post?

(My son's preschool just think I'm an over anxious mother I'm sure, so I thought if I had more than just my word about things, they make take my concerns more seriously and possibly 'observe' him more in the setting. Ie my son tip toe walked right across the hall floor this am at drop off and when I said to his key worker 'he does that quite a bit at home' she said she had never noticed before.)

It doesn't make me cross as I have written before that my son is very happy/smiley/flexible in routine etc (so I just think preschool don't look beyond that and think he PURELY has speech issues) but if I had paper to show that the Paediatrician was taking things seriously, preschool may observe a bit more.

ps. If you did receive a summary was it a while after. Our appointment was about a month ago.

Thank you in advance xx

I've had reports take 3 months before. I would phone and talk to the secretary.

They do tend to take over six weeks to write up reports

In our case the reports take a few weeks so I wouldn't panic just yet. But as Polter says you could always phone the secretary and get an update.

Thank you for those replies!

The paediatrician said she would send us some information on Autism and a 'report' to my son's SALT, so I did infer from that that we would get some kind of report also.
She also took blood to rule out chromosome abnormalities and said we should get the results in 6 weeks...so perhaps everything will turn up together by the end f the month.
