Not sure its well done to him really- it's just where he is on the spectrum (its never been officially measured before). it's just that I've wondered and often thought he could come out as severe (especially as he's non verbal). Then if I've thought he wasn't severe I've wondered whether I've been kidding myself. I never thought the word mild would feature at all so that's a very pleasant surprise. He still has other problems of course- they're just not autism.
Yes you do have to pay for it, although you can fundraise and that can specifically be offset against your bill. And they do offer bursaries.
usually you ring them, and then they do a phone interview to see whether they can help you. The first assessment is 3 days and follow ups are one or 2 days.
It's very good for helping with sensory issues and motor problems. We also had a great SALT report form there which helped us access more help down here- so that was useful. They do understand autism which is also helpful!
Glad to hear your news.
Did you ask for a CARS test or do they do it as standard. We are going to BIBIC in July. I'm excited already
Rex and Ben, the website hasn't been working properly for a while best to call them.
