Hi need some help and guidance desperately. My 8 year old son was diagnosed with ASD and ADHD very late and his school work is heartbreaking. His learning levels are that of a 5 year old and i am desperately worried that he is so far behind he wont catch up. He has started taking medication for his ADHD and seems able to concentrate slightly better but wondering if anyone knows of any home tutors in the london area that deal with children like my son......would be grateful for any feedback

Try this website:
Was recommended to me by my son's EP after assessment. He has ADHD and Dyslexia. Email them and ask for list of tutors in your area. I found an amazing lady who works with SEN kids and she's been helping my 9 year old for over a year ... good luck! smile

Hi op. my dd has just been diagnosed with the same.. She's 6 in year 2 ! Her school work is the same.. Really upsets me to see how behind she is !
I'm currently deciding whether to medicate her or not. How are you finding it ? Does he seem any different in himself ? I just worry she won't be her anymore if that makes sense ???
