    Hi, a good mate of mine might be able to help you. Google Sally Thibault. She wrote a book called David's Gift. Which is about her son David (aspie) and her family and what the have been through/ learnt etc.

    We've got no choice but to wait two months, that was his next available appointment. I would've been there today if there was something available. I've ask to be put on the cancellation list so it may be sooner.

    Ive contacted Autism QLD today & they're sending out info & claim
    Forms?
