    If you look up the West Australian Autism Diagnosticians Forum they have more info on their website or there is a Facebook group called WA Special Families which is useful too

    Am presuming from your profile that you're in WA
    Yes jellyfishie I'm in Albany, but I am taking him to the private paediatric team in Bunbury, hoping to get in earlier than i would publicly here in Albany.

    You only need to see at least 2 different health professions to have the report completed and signed and be eligible for funding.
    All up it took 2 to 3 months. It would have been less if I could have been more flexible with my appointment times though.
    I had previously collected documentation from the daycare and then school which was apparently really helpful.
    May I ask what paper work you collected from daycare?
    My son goes to day care, and if it helps the paediatricians then I will try and get this paperwork, as I'm traveling 5 hours to have him tested

    I just got them to write a letter outlining all of their concerns. The psych ended up using it in her report.
