I am new here, of course…..
my name is Imogen, married to Dean, we have two children, Noah 6 (un diagnosed Aspergers ,We believe), and Jemima 4( developing typically, but has alot to cope with….)
We are currently waiting for diagnosis for Noah..He has had pre assesment . and is visited termly by our fabulous Ed Psyc who has been immensly helpful.
In the summer we are planning to move from southampton to Newport area to be closer to my husbands family( further from mine ) and we have hope of getting both children into a school which will suit both children… A tall order it feels right now…We are still new to the concept of autism in our family and it weighs heavily especially in holidays…
The wait for diagnosis here is 12-18 months and I am not sure how to proceed with the transfer to Wales… do we go to the back of the Que or try to get Noah privately seen? time is passing and he could do with the help diagnosis would give him….
So that is where we are….Thankyou all for being here…Looking forward to meeting you all,
