Here some suggested organisations that offer expert advice on SN.

I am going to ask for DS1 (ASD, 6) to be referred back to a paediatrician or CAMHS for anxiety

This is really interesting as I have a child in my group who has this issue. He is also extremely anxious about unexplained noises, thinking that something terrible is about to happen. It seems to be worse at some times than others.
He has no diagnosis whatsoever so far, despite being seen by at least 6 different professionals in separate settings confused

Just thought I would chip in, DS has been on prozac and citalopram for anxiety and both haven't changed anything. He was offered CBT but then they said he was too severely delayed for it !!

Far too much anxiety and avoidance going on here too, so please don't let it get to the point where my DS is and unable to leave the house or the car sad

this is what I mean, I don't think the profs 'get' how to handle these kids either, ours have been at a loss with DS for over 10 year!

Hothead, can you afford to see someone privately? I only ask because you can end up fighting for provision which may or may not help. CAMHS are overstretched and highly variable in their knowledge of ASD and anxiety related conditions.

this is it, mine hasn't been to school for years and it's this what they can't seem to deal with, which makes it all a lost cause. It's horrible being prisoner 24/7. My DS is also 2:1 but wheres my other full time carer to help? sorry if thats all too negative, just trying to say deal with it now before he's out.
