Is there anyone here who has been fobbed off enough to go private for a diagnosis?
How much did it cost and do you have any helpful hints / tips for a Mother seeking a diagnosis?
His MAIN symptom is ''HYPERACTIVENESS''
He just does not stop and since Schools' have broken up (Yes, bad Mama, not home-schooling!) he has been uncontrollable.
Always on the go and believe it or not - NOT GOING TO SLEEP BEFORE 1 AM!!!
I am becoming so exhausted I want to sleep all Christmas day!!
He has IBS (or such like) and is on medication to treat that (I have also heard that bowel problems go 'hand in hand' with autism disorders)
He is now 6 years old and has already been kept back a year at school.
His motor skills are lack, and his speach has vastly improved BUT when working as a group, he's the ''listening'' child!
I want a diagnosis before he is kept back ANOTHER year and I fear that will happen, I knew when he started school he was NOT ready.
Please help, I am desprate!
