    Hi Illy. I would suggest that you ask your GP to refer you to Doctor Richer at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. It can take a long time to get an appointment but it is well worth it. Our eldest son, who is ‘high functioning autistic’, saw lots of paediatricians in our area (also Kettering) and we were told that they did not feel he was autistic. However, we ‘gatecrashed’ an appointment with Doctor Richer for our younger, lower functioning, son and asked him what he thought of our eldest. When he confirmed our thoughts, we asked him if he would mind writing us a letter to that effect, which he happily did. His diagnosis was then confirmed locally and ‘opened a lot of doors’ for us. As before, if you would like further information, please don’t hessitate to contact me at the office. We have an appointment with a paediatrician tomorrow but I will be there Friday morning. Carol.

    hi Illy,i think its sooo wierd how you cant get a diagnoses for your son as he def sounds autistic to me! Keep fighting fone carol write all his behaviours down and push push push for a decent consultant to diagnose him! If all else fails come to Edinburgh and get to see someone here when my son saw a consultant at 2yrs 9 mths she said she didnt think he had autism at 3yrs she saw him agin and said he definately did! now has been also diagnosed with adhd you need that diagnoses so u can recieve the help u need! good luck and email me if u need to talk. sama[:)]

    It has taken me 11 years to get my 12 year old son diagnosed with Aspergers, please please stick with it and dont give up, you know your child better than anyone.

    Just keep going to doctors and get them to refer you, keep a diary…

    Good luck

    I can’t believe that this same old topic is still so hard to suss out.
    It took me thirty years to get a diagnosis, but the advice I can give is this, DEMAND to see a specialist,those that shout loudest get heard quickest, I didn’t, I belong to a differant era so it was considered bad manners to shout and ball,but I wouldn’t do the same again.Also as Just jo has said, write everything down who said what to who and why.Tell your GP that you suspect A/S and you need to see a specialist NOW.
    This address below is a great help for younger children, and i’m sure they can help you, or at least direct you to the nearest help.
