ASD assessments

Hi, everybody!

I was wondering how long after all assessments have been carried out on a Dc it takes for a Dx? or for parents to have a copy of their findings?

I'd say between start (of assessments) and finish was 5 months. Individual feedback about 2 weeks after assessments, and the final feedback was about 5 weeks as they couldn't get a suitable time for all the team to be in the same room
Which wasn't long considering it took 18 months to get them to agree to assess in the first place.

Thanks frustrated I was just wondering how much longer I had to be in limbo, don't really think my nerves are going to hold out much longer sad. Just want them to get on and tell me "everything is because of you!" (which - the more I think about it would not surprise me in the slightest, my anxieties have probably been making everything much worse!) or just tell me there was nothing to be anxious about to begin with!
