DD has first cahms appt tomorrow and i am wondering what they will do? I thought they would talk to me first before seeing dd as she listens to everything i say and can play on it, will they take her out whilst they talk to me?

Do you have to take your daughter? Could you ring and check?

Our first appointment was a 'history' taking exercise. They went through DS's development, asked questions about what he was like as a baby and discussed some of the current problems.

It was a gateway appointment I think, to see if DS needed to be referred for further assessment.

Different areas do it in different ways so you could ask to check before you go in.

I rang and toild them that I might have to talk in private if DS was listening and when this happened I left the room with the psychologist.

This wasn't a problem.

Good luck!
