Rosehip, when SweetPea was referred, we were all keen for the diagnosis. By the time the assessment arrived, she was happy in her skin and didn't really care, but we went ahead because of the support she will be able to access if and when she needs it.

At youngest's age it may well be worthwhile, Rosehip. It was certainly worthwhile for both Kevin and VP as regards educational provision.

V'rap - I knew you would know, it was probably a badly worded post. I don't like labelling people but unfortunately see in my work how much easier it makes getting appropriate support - which is still very difficult in some places.

Rosehip, I would fully support a diagnosis. it can only benefit your child & if you ever have to fight for anything you will need to diagnosis.

Got something to say?
