Well we went for our medicals 28th March, took info for our son from school and medical reports from when he was diagnosed. The panel doctor suggested just sending the letter I got from his SENCO at his school as this explained how able he is to function normally and that his statement would most probably be removed if he were to stay in Uk. They now want another assessment done which is fair enough, they dont know him. The trouble is finding a specialist who can do all what they are asking up her in north east england does anyone know of any and roughly how much it costs, so I know I'm not being ripped off.

Hi there, we're just starting to process or applying for PR in South Australia to join family there and we're worried about my 6 year old who has some issues which are in the process of being diagnosed here in UK. He has been assessed last year and they have called his condition “Motor Coordination Disorder and Social Communication Disorder - possible Asperger's Syndrome.” He is about to be reassessed by the team here to see if they feel this is AS but we are reluctant for them to definitively call it this as we have heard of children being refused visas due to AS. Should we lay low and keep the diagnosis as it is for now do you think – but I think even with this vague diagnosis we would have to mention it ? some people have said if there is no definite diagnosis then don't disclose it at the medical and you'll be OK or should we disclose and hope for the best? Obviously if he has a diagnosis he'll be more entitled to help once there but by the sounds of it we may not actually get there in the first place. He is quite bright, goes to mainstream school, has a special educational needs co-ordinator who works with the teachers to give him sessions in the school twice a week discussing social issues and he needs help with writing aswell. Really puzzled by it all and grateful for your advice :wacko:on the issue of disclosure and diagnosis re the medicals but also if anyone has any info on support once we get there and schools in Adelaide which would be good for him I would be absolutely delighted!! Best wishes :hug:
