morning quick question ladies? really in need of a answer before my heart beats any faster with panic.
Why has my healthy 4a nd half year ds,been referred here?? e.s.p.d??

he can hold a pen ok,when he concentrates.can dress and do everything himself. Bein assessed due to school worries bout asd.

I haven't comeacross these people as an organsisation but I can think of a few reasons:

1. part of a general multidisciplinary assessment- many kids with asd have motor issues etc

2. It may simply be where the OT is absed and a general referral for help with sensory issues

3. It might be about the concentration- although a good many 4.5 year olds don't concentrate about pen holding. It is, after all, boring until it comes naturally.

I wouldn't panic (but can understand), however if you are worried how about a call to the GP?
