I have booked an appointment with the community peadiatritian tomorrow. We saw one 7 months ago and they considered diagnosing autism but said we should go to the assessment centre to confirm it. (DS is 3) They didnt tell us we would have to wait a year for that assessment centre.
So I have booked another appointment to see them again.
I have written and delivered a ten page letter detailing everything about DS. (Very excessive but only scratches the surface!)
What should I demand ask for tomorrow? Should I try to push for a diagnosis? A working diagnosis? Help?
We finally got a diagnosis today for DS 3.9 it took about 18 months from when concerns were first raised. It is a very frustrating process!!! All you can do is push for an appointment, offer to take a cancellation etc. What about SALT or OT have you had referrals?
