Private assesment of ASD in south west

(3 Posts)

Has anyone gone for a private diagnosis in south West ? Any recommendations?

I'm considering it as my son is awaiting assesment but won't be seen until the end of the year...

He's just 2. Early intervention is key so with that in mind I'm considering paying to get an assesment quicker. It would have to be one recognised by the LA and NHS etc too...

You could ask your paediatrician if he would see you privately but I would wait for the assessment. The one we had in the SW was amazingly thorough (though may have changed with the dawning of Virgincare). On the whole I would save my money and use it to pay for support rather than assessment.

Thanks zzzz. I'll see if this is an option
