After six years of pushing for an assessment my soon to be 12 year old son has two half an hour appointments to complete his ADOS tomorrow afternoon. What can we expect? He doesn't usually say anything in hospital/doctors appointments. Will this be difficult? We saw CAMHS last week and both the health professionals that we saw said that it was 'glaringly obvious' that my son is 'on the spectrum'. Both a Paediatric Consultant and an Educational Psychologist in the last two months have suggested Asperger's as the most likely diagnosis. I think I am more nervous than he is!
