We have been offered a consultation with CAMHs to discuss our 7 year old sons needs. We had him referred as we suspect he has ADHD. Our SW is also querying whether he may have FAS an our GP said he also shows signs of ASD.
We have had our son home for 6 months and there was a mention of ADHD and possible dyspraxia in his reports but his paediatrician put it down to his past and discharged him so we didn't think we would have much of an issue. He also had an EHCP with 22 hours 1:1 and we were told this would probably be lost as he was making such good progress.
How wrong they were. His new school have been fantastic and it was their suggestion to refer to CAMHs as they suspect he has ADHD, DCD. They have also had his EHCP increased to 32 hours, have got a private SaLT in to see him and an EP also sees him at school.
Anyway, my question is what do I ask these people. What should I be telling them to get him the help he needs? Are there too many professionals involved already? We have never dealt with anything like this before and his SW is almost useless and I suspect that she won't be at the appointment even though she has been invited.
