Hi, I’m wondering if anyone has any experience of school having a totally different opinion on your child’s needs?
My son has been under assessment since her was 2 years old. He is now 9, he has daily panic attacks around going to school, spends most of the morning on the toilet because of his nerves, has sensory issues and has made no solid friendships since starting school.
He has recently had an ADOS which we are waiting a meeting to discus the results but the on the back of it we have been asked to complete the Australian scale questions for assessing aspergers.
I spoke with his teacher who had a completely different point of view to us. She thinks he plays nicely with other children (but couldn’t name any in particular) didn’t show any signs of social communication problems, no tics in school, and her results on the scale were totally different to mine.
Had anyone had any experience of this and knows how the dr will come to a decision when we are not agreeing on anything?
Sorry this is convoluted I’m in a bit of a pickle over this.
