Thanks Diamond Eyes. Good to know it will just be a chat. I had no idea what they would do and was expecting him having to do things for a stranger and getting shy or not doing what they want. So I feel better now!
I'll have to make a list of the words he says as I'm sure they will want to know how many etc.

My DD's kindy teacher asked me if she had SPD (so i had to go home & google what that was!) And when i asked DS's health nurse about it, she referred us to an OT. The OT thinks DD has much more than SPD and is suspecting Aspergers. Now waiting on our first paed appt!
I knew absolutely nothing about ASD until this all started happening. Now i see my DD in everything i read about it

Just an update - had our appt, and he's fine. Paed said there is no evidence of Autism based on how he was and the answers I gave. So that was what I expected, but glad I went and got him checked out.
Thanks again for all the opinions and advice

I find it interesting how different professionals decide different things. I have a almost 3 year old who has very delayed speech, multiple SPDs, horrifying tantrums and meltdowns, toe walker, no sense of danger at all, difficult getting his attention alot of the time, doesn't play with other kids, but is fine with adults once he gets to know them and because he is good with adults no one thinks he could be on the ASD. I've had to push and push to get a referral to ASPECT, and they are only doing it to appease me, my nephew has autism so its in the family. This whole journey has been a nightmare.

Beebs. I was just flicking through and wondered how you got on.
I am going through the process with DS at the moment. I have not had to push but wait and see. But the pead today said it's time to send it up to get a DX.
DS is similar to what you have described but he is not so good with adults either but he has been taught to cuddle to say goodbye (silly grandma is great with the guilt trips). That gets the Drs every time.
Hope you have an answer soon. I hate the waiting.
