Dd was referred to Cahms by paediatrician, we got a letter yesterday with a date for a home visit, can anyone tell me what will happen at this visit? Will it be to meet dd and see her in her home setting etc? I also have a couple of forms with questions on to fill out.
I would ring camhs to double check they want dd at the firs app as we've had a few camhs sessions and they don't want to see my dd at all they just want to question me about her behaviour! Tbh I don't think they have any intention of seeing dd at all, s give them a ring to double check
Gosh thats a long time! We saw the paediatrician 4 weeks ago & she refered my DS to CAMHs. I aked her what it entailed but it was the end of our appointment & was hurried along without giving us any details. She made another appointment for 4 months time for after our meeting with CAMHS so i kind of assumed it wouldn't be too long before we heard fom them.
I know, I couldn't believe it when I opened the letter, I must have a sixth sense. I'm not sure if it's a home visit, I had to ring to confirm appointment & they said they would send me some more details in the post. I'll have to put back the paediatrician as well.
My DS is 5 & has symptoms/trait of aspergers, ADHD & dyspraxa. His behaviours tend to be worse in school but is becoming increasingly worse at home too. A lot of things were hidden under the persona of a 3 year old but now at the age he is, they stick out like a sore thumb. Whats your situation?
I spoke to my boss today whose daughter has been assessed under CAMHs for 10 years & was finally dx 2 months ago. She said CAMHS have been brilliant & hve given so much support over the years & have helped her & her daughter a lot. I really hope they can do the same for us. I've always felt i've coped well over the years but now i feel like i'm losing control & really need help.
