my son, lewis - 6yrs
has a diagnosis of adhd, with complex autistic specail needs.
with sensory dysfunction, sleep disorder.speech & language problems.
i would just like to know what other mums think about the phrase ''complex autistic needs''.
lewis has been under specailist pead since 2008. had a the diagnosis of adhd the first time we met her, then she said ''have you heard of autism/'' 'i think lewis has autism'', then it went to aspergers, but no diagnosis apart from asd.
he has seen every specailist goign, through school & health as he has a statement of spec ed needs, and now attends a autism spectrum unit-which he thrives in1 doing fantastically-up a yr in maths & can now read and write! his teachers are angels in disguise!
going to see a child pyschologist 20th april. he passed all the ados assessment fine.....all ''normal''.
i would appreciate any news-im just lost now-
