Aspergers help for 10 year old

Hi all,

My son was diagnosed with Aspergers in April.

He is currently going through the secondary school process as he is in year 6.
We are looking at independent schools and some require an interview. He can struggle when interacting with adults he doesn't know - eye contact problems, shyness etc.

I would like to find out whether there is any help I can get with this for him. Should I see an education psychologist or someone else?

We live in south-west London and if anyone has any recommendations please do share them. Similarly if you know of any schools that are particularly good at dealing with Aspergers.

Many thanks

I would be very wary of placing him in an independent school if there is no support in place. Be clear about what his needs are and what he struggles with.
More House School is supposed to be a wonderful school for Aspie kids.

Thanks that's helpful.

He is actually currently at the prep school and is coping more than fine academically. I am more concerned that he gets help with social interaction as he gets older.

Thanks again.
