This post follows on from Cameron’s TAC Meeting
We came to the following conclusions:
- Only the Paediatrician can make a final diagnosis of Autism. And she would not be rushing into it, because as she said at our meeting back in January, she was not convinced that Cameron had Autism.
- The Paediatrician is not allowed to make a diagnosis of Autism without my consent. So with that information we have agreed not to do any more assessments on Autism.
- The Paediatrician explained that a child may have Autistic Traits but may not be on the Autistic Spectrum
- She will be going into Cameron’s nursery to observe him herself with the Speech Therapist or on her own.
- Whilst we are not going down the Autistic route any more, she did explain to me that she would have to be honest with me and if she thought Cameron had any traits of Autism then she would have to tell me. I told her, I don’t have a problem with that as long as what she is saying is 100% accurate.
- She will be ringing the Speech Therapist to see exactly what the hell is going on.
So despite crying like a baby down the phone to her, the phone call was ended on a positive note. I felt a lot more reassured that now the Autism diagnosis will now be dropped and now we can start getting Cameron the help he actually needs.
