It’s been playing on my mind a lot recently about the Speech Therapist’s assessment on Cameron that is due to happen this Friday.
In our last TAC meeting, I made it adamantly clear to the Speech Therapist, that there was to be no more Autism talk or assessments or anything to do with Autism full stop.
However as you probably know from my previous posts, the Speech Therapists aren’t one to listen to me and always go off on their own agenda.
So I tried ringing her last Thursday. She wasn’t available. So I left a message that under no circumstances was she to do any Autism assessment and she was to ring me ASAP to discuss.
I didn’t hear back. So yesterday I rang again. Quite angry this time. Fed up of her not returning my calls. Reiterated the same thing to the administrator.
Today I finally got a phone call back.
She told me that there would be no more Autism Assessments. The Speech Therapist informed me that she was going to Cameron’s nursery on Friday. She was going to spend time with him to get a bigger picture. It looks like she has finally listened to not only me but the Paediatrician. She was going to do a assessment on how he understands language. The Speech Therapist still has it in her head that he doesn’t understand how to use language.
She also said that she would be having a meeting with her manager after to discuss the way forward with Cameron as she was now having to withdraw from being his Speech Therapist because she is an ASD Specialist.
Although this was good news as Cameron really doesn’t like her. I am a bit worried now that Cameron will not get the help he needs with his Speech. Not that he has been getting any anyway as it has all been sodding assessments. I fear that after nearly a year in the system we are going to have to start this whole thing again.
Again, we are playing the waiting game…
