DS aged 8 has suspected ASD and has his first Salt appointment next week. He is extremely verbal (can talk for hours on a subject that interests him). I wondered what will happen for someone his age as only read about younger children's experiences.

My ds had a SALT assessment when he was just 11 as his previous one was years ago and I wanted a better understanding of his non-verbal communication. It was really helpful. Some was just her chatting with him and me and using her clinical judgment and then she did some tests around inference and other things I can't remember blush

Thanks. I have to bring my baby to the appointment too so it's good to know they'll talk to me.
