Hi, i recemtly had my 4yr old son tested for autism. When i rang and got the assessment out come they told me he had boderline autism. I wanted to know if anyone knows or has a child that has this diagnosis. I need to get my son properly diagnosed so he can recieve speacial needs assistance at school. Im not sure if this diagnosis is good enough or if the doctor just doesnt want to put him into an autistic catagory. I have already been told by my OT my son has asperger's but she is unable to diagnose him and advised to go interstate for a proper assessment. I just want someone who has been in the same situation, im not sure if i should go ahead with what the doctor says or get a second opinion.
