Since my now 8yr old son was very young around 2 t 2 n a half I've observed sum behaviours and traits from him that would suggest he is on the autistic spectrum sum where,thease feelings have remained the same up until this day however I don't even no where to start about going to get an assesment I mean a good one,we have a service called limetrees where we live and can have an assesment done by thease,however the spectrum is so very large thease days and I no a diagnosis will be difficult,a clinician who could asses my son could have very little experience yet still give a diagnosis,I want to go more further a field and have a well experienced clinician or phycolagist asses my son as I fear things will go missed by someone not so good at there job,as a lot of my sons traits r subtle he will need a very accurate detailed assesment,It is aspergers syndrome I would like him assessing for,any advice where to start would be much appreciated ,thanks

I would have my kid tested- I wasn't and I have aspergers. It was a long road to figuring it out myself when I was 28. (A friend of mine, a psychiatrist, thins I'm spot on. It's better to know than not. It's hard to treat if there is no diagnosis

A good child psychologist would probably be the place to start. Ask his regular doctor for any recommendations.
