No diagnosis, what now?

Wed 30 Nov 2016 1:04pm

I was referred for adult autism assessment at 42, came out with just "shy, and anxious due to childhood trauma". Im requesting a review as I'm not happy with the assessment.

Any one else have experience of not getting diagnosis and pursued it..? 

Wasnt expecting a non diagnosis and now feel worse without any explanation of all the autism traits and struggles... My direct relatives, including my son and cousin, have ASD diagnosis or some mental health condition....

Son undergoing diagnosis- what to expect?

Thu 10 Nov 2016 7:58am

Hi all.
I'm new on here. I have a son , 22 months, that has been screened and observed by a family member who is a Consultant psychologist. She suspects it's highly likely he has ASD.

The gp has referred him and we are now awaiting our first appointment. There seems to be a long wait.

In the meantime any tips on what to do to help bring on his communication? I'm trying a bit of signing and also using photos.

Newly diagnosed partner - where to start with support

Thu 27 Oct 2016 7:53pm

My husband was given an asd diagnosis this summer and the initial shock has worn off and I'm turning my thoughts to how we now get support.
So questions -
1. We are on a low income but due to asd hubby has limited work experience / NI contributions. Where do we even start for government financial support?

Jack's progress during 2016

Tue 18 Oct 2016 10:43am

Hello everyone,

Well it has been a challenge this year, but hopefully by December, I will be half way to my MEng with the Open University, once I pass T804 (2nd attempt) and T805. Next week I start T889 "Problem Solving", what I will be very useful, help me to analyse problems and find ways to solve them.

My main worry is coming up with an idea for the EMA project, related to space/engineering. But once agian it is always different when I start a new module,  get anixous about things, but once I start, it gets easier.
