What to do. She starts high school in sept. We had speech and language assessment who says she's on spectrum but Leicestershire have to have ed psych report as well. School keep saying they will do it but with 6 weeks of school left I can't see it happening at all.

Salt diagnosed ASD??? shock. Without any other professionals input???? shockshockshock

That sounds HIGHLY unusual. Did they put it in writing? What does the report actually say?

Email school with two questions (numbered)

1) what date is Dd booked to see EP
2) what have they put in place to aid transition?

Go into school and ask what date the Ep will be in, I have a feeling they are waiting till shes left because they wont want the hassle, Salt cannot diagnose they can suggest in a round about way, as my sons has, by saying about lack of theory of mind and such like.

SALT talking about traits IS NOT a covert way of them telling you your child has autism. It's perfectly possible to have bucketloads of traits and not have autism.
Email is better because it provides a written dated record.

Was it an independent SALT assessment? The SALT may have had other qualifications which allowed her to diagnose!

As zzzzz said do everything by email!
