Hi jenk. I'm sure there are many mumsnetters who know loads about this (I'm not one of them sadly) and will be willing to help but most seem to have gone to bed. Try again during the day or early evening.

Hi Jenk, welcome to mumsnet
I have a 6yr old dd with a language disorder

I would probably just wait and see what they say at the specialist unit. Without knowing too much I think it may be something along those lines if they are referring and 2 psych also think so (obviously I could be very wrong as I know nothing about you or your situation). I would wait for the assessment and then you will know if it is some kind of asd or if they can rule it out.

I know it's hard but hang in there. Once you do know what you are dealing with remember it's not a label but a signpost!

How soon will you get to go to this unit? If its soon then I would also wait but if its ages then you should ask for a referral to Developmental Paediatrician and/or Child Development Centre.
