I wonder if anyone can advise. My son who is 12 has been with CAMHS for a number of years with little impact. I, in conjunction with his school, asked that he be referred to a specialist service. He has acute anxiety and I feel CAMHS have one bag of tools which they are unable to adapt for ASD. We have tried with them for a number of years but with little impact. I believe he needs a specialist service that can look at him as a whole with an expert knowledge of ASD. Our consultant refuses to refer him. The GP has tried to advocate on our behalf to little effect. Does anyone have any ideas. I am very concerned as we are entering adolescence. Many thanks.
Hi how did you get on in the end? Did you indeed any help. I am in a similar situation and not finding the Cognitive therapy offered by CAMHS relevant for ASD.
