Partial Diagnosis- Advice Pls

Hi, I am a single mum of a 4yr old boy who has recently seen a Pediatrician regarding social difficulties and violent outbursts. 

We have since received a letter from the hospital diagnosing Social Communication Difficulties, Atypical Sensory Issues and Difficulties with fine motor skills. 

The letter states my son will be discussed with the ASD board over the next 3/4m and they will decide if he is on the spectrum. 

I’m so worried as his behaviour is getting worse every day he starts school in Sept and I don’t have another appointment till August with the hospital. 

Can anyone tell me what I can do if he doesn’t get the diagnosis but is just kept under observation? Is there still support I can get?

  • Hi, your sons school should be able to offer support when he starts even if he doesn't have full diagnosis, 

    I would recommend making an appointment with the school senco prior to him starting in September and make them aware of any concerns and inform them where you are with appointments they can put support in place straight away, especially since peadiatrics have already confirmed he has social and communication problems. 

    As kitsun suggested call the helpline or check the education rights pages on here

    Good luck
