Bonjour Adelaide

I have often felt there was more to Chris than just AD/HD! In fact Chris is diagnosed with AD/HD and OCD however I've never felt OCD matched Chris's difficulties. I was unable to get professionals to even talk about autism signs Chris was showing. I used a legal right for a second opinion and Chris's psychiatrist agreed to this. When he asked who I would like to do this I gave him the name of the highly respected doctor in this area that provides assessments for autism in children on NHS.

He spent nearly 4 hours with us and had all Chris's history including school assessment and school psychologist records. He was very thorough and had read Chris's reports prior to visiting us. This was a last option and I do not have the right for another assessment by a different consultant. I didn't ask what assessment procedure he used because there was so much to go through. I was impressed with the questions he asked and the details he took on board both from Chris's notes and analysing Chris extremely thoroughly when seeing Chris at the beginning. He did look at our web site before going and said he was going to spend some time going through this site later. So maybe he may answer your question more precisely.

If I see adult specialist then that may also support or not support diagnosis for Chris. I'm not surprised for Chris I have felt Chris has AS 4 a long time. However it was a bit of a shock when he said he thought I had it to and thinking back over the last few days I think he is probably write however it's still a shock to me in some ways.

Take care, Andy
