Does your child's diagnosis have clarity in it's wording?

e.g.

something like:

1. Autistic Spectrum disorder (in a list format) or xxxx has asd

or more:

displays xxxxx, xxxxx, xxxx indicating a diagnosis of xxxxx

My sons says, I do feel that XXXXXXX fits with a diagnoses of High functioning Autism and mum want XXXXX to receive a formal diagnoses which I am doing today, that was from the peadatrician to our Gp.

thank you, ours was clear at social com clinic what it was and talked a lot about post diagnosis support, but I just find the wording odd

Good luck with the post diagnoses support! we have not had any, just been dumped and left too it.

Ours reads DD "meets the criteria for a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder".

Ours is camhs based behaviour, maybe GOSH feeding clinic, salt feeding but probably not language based salt, out of area early bird (prob not) and parenting support. Always wrongly targeted, aside from feeding I'm not looking for it- whilst typically those who want it probably dont ! It's all hap hazard

Btw not not interested because I don't think it's good, but because I have previous experience of the groups

I think it says "fits the criteria for".

Nb ASD does NOT mean Aspergers, ds is NOT aspergic and has an ASD diagnosis.

Our diagnosing doctor told us AS is no longer a diagnostic condition and it fits under the umbrella of ASD.

Here I think that they have moved everyone on to ASD as a dx regardless of language or level of difficulty in line with DSM V (which is daft as it's not our diagnostic criteria but US's bit hey ho).

Ds says

X was allocated to begin assessment in xxxxxx and the assessment was completed in xxxxxxx.
There have been a number of components including ADOS and questionnaires from home and school and observation.
This information was presented to a multi disaplinary team to determine if X met the criteria for an ASC.
The ASC assessment outcome agreed by the whole team was that X:

Meets the criteria for a diagnosis of autistic spectrum condition.

Attached to summary is an appendix which evidences how all the information gains through assessment matches the diagnostic criteria.

Mine says lildragon meets the criteria for a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome.
