After an assessment period of around two years my 20yo boy has been diagnosed with ASD. Other than a number to call to be added to the waiting list for a ‘post diagnosis session’ and a ‘post diagnosis parent programme’ we’ve been discharged from the service as they are an assessment only provision. I’ve been given copies of all his assessments and reports to give to school, but that’s all
is this a usual experience? I’m in Norfolk and I know that the provision is bad here. I’m I bit stuck in a what-to-do-next rut really!
Any advice/help/signposting much appreciated.
