I was wondering if you can help me find out if my child has ASD. He is undergoing assessment but when you are a parent you just want to know if there is something wrong. He has just got a statment going through as we speak. He is 3 yrs academically behind and is in year 5. He has difficulties in socialising with anyone he doesnt know. If you look at him on the outside he looks like any other child.I believe he has ASD but need it medically proven. He quiet and withdrawn and he does not have any friends. He is bullied at school due to the lack of understanding and he can't procees things that we take for granted.

Thank you for your enquiry, I am glad to hear that your son's educational needs are being assessed, this will ensure he receives the support necessary for him to achieve academically at school. A diagnosis of ASD is made by the local CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), there is usually a screening questionnaire for parents/carers, and then an interview with a psychiatrist, sometimes an ADOS assessment is used to ensure an accurate diagnosis. Your GP can refer you to your local CAMHS team.
