When i first joined Thyroid uk it was to help with my thyroid condition, since then many members have helped me with a whole lot more.
I posted a while ago that i was having difficulty getting support for my 17 year old son who had Aspergers, severe anxiety and OCD. He never leaves the house because his anxiety is so acute.
Despite going through all the channels to get help, including social care, mental health team, my MP an so on i still cant get a full assessment of needs from social care. My son has had a assessment from them but was not inclusive of his full needs and the social worker referred him to Learning dissabilities. It came as no suprise that he did not meet their criteria.
The whole process has been crazy, not one person has any idea what another person is doing, or what another agency actually does or does not do. I will battle on with this but in the meantime, Does anyone know what department of social care would beable to do an assessment of needs, taking into account that hes 17 years old.
The other question i have is ...does anyone know of any education provision at home funded by the council?
They seem simple enough questions i know,..but not one person can answer them.
