we're off to BIBIC with ds next month. It looks like it'll be before any of our NHS referrals come through. I know they won't diagnose ds but will the assessment be useful for the paeds?

What happens at the assessment? Did you find it useful?

we went in may and yes i found it usefull

first of all it gave me a picture overall where ds was devlopemental wise and where weakness was thy also gave me pratical idears on how to strenthen areas he was struggling in something still waiting for good old nhs to dohmm .They do this over 2 days rathe rtha the 20 mins every 6 months he got with devlopmental paed

they also gave me ways to work on fact he is oversenstive totouch in some areas and undersentive in others
ds did not even understand was being assesd far as he was concerned we played with lots of new toys , also went played ina physical room also got to go ins sensory room

thanks phoenix! Did you stay down there? We're debating booking into a B&B vs driving down each day (petrol would probably be more expensive).

It's reassuring that it was fun for your ds So you think their assessment of him was fairly accurate?

There is a travel lodge type place in Bridgwater, not far from BIBIC. Also, look around the Burnham area for hotels/caravan accomodation that can be quite reasonable.
