    We've been referred to a developmental psychologist. Our Paed wanted us to see him because he's got years of experience specifically with autism and does a thorough assessment (including family interviews, daycare observations etc). Apparently he'll provide a detailed report and depending on what he says, we'll then go back to the Paed for formal diagnosis. At least I think that's the process! First step is the psych, so we'll see from there.

    We're doing all of this privately, we can afford to do it this way and we want it to happen as soon as we can.

    Update: we went to the developmental psych assessment today, it was really good and very informative. The psych doesn't think DS has autism, which is great news. However he does believe his development level is about equivalent to an 18mo (DS is 2y8m) and coupled with his language delay it warrants further review later in the year to see what progress ds makes. He recommended we continue speech therapy and also look at OT to help develop DSs play & social skills (apparently he's quite disorganised in his play and lacks planning in the way he approaches tasks). Obviously given it doesn't look like autism it means we won't get funding, so cost is going to be a factor, but we'll do whatever we need to.
