Hi, I'm not from that far up north so can't help, sorry....what problems is your dc having that you need to see a paed for? It might help if you feel able to give a little more infosmile

Thanks
Well my Dd is showing ASD type traits mainly stimming when she is "trying to concentrate" and does is it a lot when she is excited.
She has always been a difficult sleeper and has a really poor attention span.
Got a ref from the GP to paed...who said "she is fine don't worry"
Left the paed in tears and I having been googling like mad....(maybe not the best thing to do when feeling so so worried).But I feel in need to see an experienced paediatrician for either reassurance or some support for my Dd.
