i am writing on behalf of my brother who is 17, and is diagnosed with autism and epilepsy. we live in London and he attends college. he has speaking and communication issues, and, in turn, behaviour issues too. as of the last 18 months, his epilepsy has gotten drastically worse, and so we are seeking private specialist support, for both his autism and epileptic.
i am not too certain how private healthcare works, and so a consultant seems like the first step. but advise on where to start will also be appreciated.
both my brother, and myself are in need of help and advise,
Speak to your insurers first and find out if your policy covers whatever investigations you are looking for - if it's covered, do some Googling and find the best person in the area then you just get your GP to write a direct referral.
If your policy doesn't cover it, you can just gfet your wallet out and pay yourself - but it can be expensive.
