Ds 5 has HFA and is a private school. I've always thought of him as bright but I don't think he's reaching his potential. Somethy the Head said has concerned me ("He isn't setting the academic world alight." shock hmm He also alluded to some standardized scores - I think the school undertakes some testing to see where kids are. I haven't been informed. Every time I say DS has potential but isnt achieving it, they look at me puzzled. I now understand why. His scores were probably not great. I don't care what his scores are or that he isn't at the top of his class but I do care that he is being taught in a manner that's suits him. Maths is all workbooks but he's a tactile learner and so I'm not surprised he's seen as behind in maths.

I'd like an Ed Psych with lots of experience with ASD kids to assess to assess him. Any suggestions? Cost? I wish he could be in a gentle school....

Lisa Blakemore-Brown, Valerie Hero, Lindsay Peer. Not sure about cost, but be prepared for something quite hefty for a thorough report.

I used Valerie Hero 2 years ago to assess DD with HFA. She did a very thorough report despite the fact DD was hard to assess - out of school and selective mutism. The cost then was £800 plus travel as far as I remember.
