asd disagnosis sorted for son at last - yipee

Postby animalhouse » Wed Jan 11, 2012 2:37 pm

finally got some things off my today list this week so are feeling more postive again. sorry for "low mood".

1. my 9 year old after being taken out of school 2 years ago has finally got a diagnosis of austistic spectrum disorder - aspergers.
so thats one thing off my to do list and will make things easier for him, they have also sent a letter to our local schol where we now live to suggest he try part time as i would like him to go and get the chance to mix with other kids locally who we see at the park. but i know he is happiest at home. he is a very clever lad - dr who man - but has struggled learning to read at school and has only learnt whilst being at home so still need to find help for his dyselixia? or whatever that is.

2. had a mental health assessment
a counsellor rang to do an over the phone assessment and i am going to be referred for cbt to deal with my fear of driving/meeting people, since the crash so that is good. i think as there is a 3/4 months waiting list for this i agreed to let them refer me to the pain clinic/workshop thing first. i did n't want to be bogged down with lots of apppointments again and get stressed but have agreed if before the cbt as i reallly do want to try and get out again into the world and possibly go on a few short adult ed courses or something to get me out there and be employable again if i can.

3. rang open unviersity
to have the credits from my nursing course accepted and pehaps start another course in health & social care or social work as i know nursing will have physical mlimitations. :( :-)

:-) :-) :-) :-) thtink i will have a lie down now exhausted after that had a maasge again this morning for first time since xmas to am pleased - now just have to face taht dreaded doctor again for another report for dwp. :yikes: :yikes:

Sounds like a really positive day for you animalhouse, and long overdue for you :clap: :clap: :clap:

Glad you're finally getting somewhere with your son. I know how frustrating it is, when you know there is something there but the "experts" claim there isn't. Hopefully now things will start going in a better way for all of you. As for him being a Doctor Who man, you're talking to the Doctor Who woman here. We went to one of the Up Close displays, and I out anoracked everyone there :clap: :clap: :clap:

Be prepared for some heavy going with the CBT :yikes: :yikes: I'm not trying to scare you or put you off, it's just that it can get very intensive and upsetting at times. Despite that tho, it can be extremely helpful in helping you face things and deal with them :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

thank you for the support.

i a have also been to my gp this morning and he is going to send some notes in i gave him saying he support what i have listed as mobility and care needs.

apparently he wont do a report unless they ask but thats good enough for me.


would let to get off this merry go round of dla tribunals and reapplications but at least things are falling into place.

It's good to hear some positive stuff is finally happening for you. Hopefully when things get sorted and finalised, you'll then have some of that really uneventful time that you'll be forced to fill with something enjoyable instead :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :wave: :wave:

Hi animalhouse. Great news for you and your son about the aspergers. My thoughts and prayers are with you every step of the way. My nephew was diagnosed last year with aspergers after a 2 yr battle by my sister-in-law. Our son was also diagnosed many years ago with having an 'autistic spectrum disorder' so I have some idea of what you are going through.

Great news for you with your cbt too. I hope you find some benefit from it, even if it's just something little, it will help. And good that they are referring you to the other workshop in between things. Fantastic news on applying for other courses, that's really brave of you, well done! I hope they can sort something out for you. And you're so lucky to have a massage to finish it all off with - what a wonderful day for you! I hope it all starts looking up for you now. Take care and you are in my prayers. Cherry xx
