I have been getting concerned about my youngest son for a while now. For those who don't know, I have a 10yo son who has a social communication disorder with traits of autism, we are currently waiting to see if he is on the spectrum or not. These are my concerns;

•The youngest one has never been given enough attention and very rarely our full attention. He has had several medical problems requiring hospital treatment and even then, the oldest one always seems to end of the primary concern.

HI All,

Just wondered what experiences people had of the EHC process, we are currently being refused an assessment for a child with High Functioning Autism.

Hi my names Jayne my lb is 3 & half currently going through the process for asd. It's been a very emotional time I'm really worried about how he will be as an adult I just want to wrap him up. My question is Iv read early intervention is key. Is there any other support we can get outside of school? He's having a one to one for 2 hours a day at the moment in school. Thanks Jayne

Hello everyone, 

You'll all be glad to hear that T804 is going aswell as I could have hoped for, 14% OCAS so far, TMA-01 score due any time now. 

I tweet Tim Peake everyday, I can't get enough of seeing him on EVA. 

Anyway I would like to ask for some advice. I need to choose my 3rd OU module for the MEng. I'm deciding between T889 problem solving and TU812 managing systemic change.

T889 is about developing and improving my own personal skills (P-S is recommended in engineering).

EHCs and private schools

Fri 29 Jan 2016 2:06pm

Hi there

My son Michael is 9 and in year 4 at a private school.  He was diagnosed in October 2014, although the school had regarded him as being on the spectrum some time before that (his Year 1 teacher flagged him) and it took some time to get a diagnosis.
