We have two adopted children , who at present we have documentation to state that child number 1, his birth mum drank through pregnancy. Child number one we have just had a peaditrician appointment and we have discovered that birth mum didn't know she was pregnant till week 25, so there is a possibility of FASD.
We are having genetic tests for both children which is in December ,in the meantime the separate peaditrician's have recommended child one to go on the ASD pathway to get some support, child two to be seen by the education psycholigst.
Yesterday we have been informed by the school that after the multi disciplinary meeting it was agreed that neither of these peaditrician's recommendations are to be followed!
They at this meeting which we as parents are not allowed to attend , said that they would rather wait for the results of the tests!
We are fuming! How can a education psychologist , LA inclusion officer, behaviour improvement team, CAMHS, ASD pathway co-ordination manager and language and School and Social Communications Team overturn two Peaditrician's recommendations!
Any thoughts please, as we feel we are constantly fighting for services, or help.
Kind regards D
