    citizenship

    Can some advise me. I got my PR 2015, my son was diagnosed with mild autistic in 2016. He is getting speech therapy, OT, a pediatrician and integration aid at school (through funding),he is on NDIS. Can this bring complication to our citizenship? Also, do we need to apply for a bridging visa or resident return visa while waiting for citizenship to be approved?
  2. HI, My 4 yrs od has had an initial assessment indicating autistic spectrum disorder. He has NOT been diagnosed with anything. THe lovely Dr said it could be 8 months before he can be further assessed, She is aware of our intention to emigrate and we may be gone by then. My query is how can I get him assessed again when in Oz. Do I just take his assessment with me and take it to a Dr to get referred on. Will it cost anything? The Dr said it could affect emigrating if he was diagnosed but at this stage she has identified there is an issue with communication and understanding etc so he can not be judged as it is not a diagnosis. Anyone been in a similiar postition? Thanks Catherine
  3. Hi everyone, completely no idea what I am doing or what button to press, so bear with me on this one. Im married with twin 6 year old boys who have very mild aspergers syndrome and dyspraxia (high functioning autistic). Very unhappy with the english schools and way of life for children and families with this problem. Heard a lot of good reports about schools in Australia and understanding for autistic children but have no idea which area is best to look in. My husband is motor mechanic and train mantainer and can do carpentry so hopefully will have a chance if we apply. So is there anyone out there who has similiar situation with children to me or knows anyone who can give me some advise please. Im trying to find out a town or part of Australia which would suit my children the best. Anyone moved there and have child or children in school with similiar problems or at least a school with english accent children would help. Im already worried they wont be able to handle the move! Best regard Julie :wacko: :arghh: :spinny:

    Citizenship & autism

    My husband and I are already living in Australia with our 2 year old son who was born in the UK. We have been here just over a year on 175 skilled permanent resident visas and my son is on a child visa 101. After recent news headlines about parents being deported because their children have been diagnosed with autism, It has got us slightly worried and I am keen to hear from any legal experts or other families who have been in a similar situation as to if a child gets diagnosed with autism on a visa (it is a permanent resident visa) would there be any issues when it comes round to applying for citizenship for them and us in a few years time? Would it be better to wait to get a diagnosis if there were signs until after citizenship. Any advice would be great. Thanks.
  5. Hi again, As part of arranging our move back to the UK, it will be really important for me to be able to ensure that my secondary school aged son is able to have a reasonable school experience despite being on the high functioning end of the Autism Spectrum (ie. Asperger syndrome type issues, but otherwise pretty bright). He has really struggled with primary schooling over here in Australia. The school systems in Oz are often so unresponsive to the needs of these children that home schooling is often suggested/forced on them. This really isn't an option for us as I'm a single Mum and the sole family breadwinner. Furthermore he's a sociable lad (it's myth that just because they're often excluded these kids are interested in socialising). He currently is going to a very good school for his needs in Brisbane - it's one in the Catholic system (though we're not Catholic). Please don't advise me to stay on in Australia until he's finished high school here. That won't work for a bunch of reasons to lengthy to go into here. As mentioned previously, we're looking at moving to the southern part of the Greater London area. House not yet selected/purchased. Locations restricted by amount I can afford to pay. Does anyone out there know what I need to do to make sure that local school provides appropriate support. On the whole I've been advised by Brits over here that the disability services system is of a higher standard than Australia, but I'm not clear about how this translates across to support for kids with non-visible, yet diagnosed, disabilities in mainstream education in the UK. As mentioned, his IQ is quite high so he doesn't need to go to a segregated special school. I'm wondering if there's some paperwork I can start to organise at this end, advocacy organisations or support groups I can join that would be helpful, or whether there's a specific government or non-government agency that can help. Info I've found by trawling the web so far seems a bit general. Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you. :biggrin:
  6. Hi all! Firstly i am new to this site and not sure how everything works yet, but here goes! I have joined this site as my partner and i decided we would love to make the move to australia. We are both mid 20's, i am studying nursing while my partner is in construction management. My partners little sister has recently gained residency in queensland and his parents are now planning to move over permanently also :shocked: My partner has informed me that an employer would sponser him for the move. We have 3 children, 9,5,4. I had my heart set on it all until through looking for info on visas i found this site and came across medical requirements for visa. This is where the nightmare (literally) started for me. My 9yr old has a diagnosis of ASD. After reading through posts/threads i realised it may be virtually impossible to gain a permanent visa with this diagnosis. Since he was diagnosed (aged 4) he has astonished health professionals by since gaining full speech (were told he would never speak) and understanding of language, he has no repetative tendancies, joins his mainstream class everyday as he asks to do so, is highly sociable, needs no assistance to self care, does not and never has been on any medication and has no physical difficulties. I am looking into migration experts but due to the anxiety and stress of learning about this i have made this my first port of call before i drown my sorrows with bottle of wine! Any advice/experience or information would be greatly appreciated. i am clinging onto any hope i have left. Thanks, Suz

    Migration with Autistic Child

    Hi I have received the Victorian State Sponsorship (Visa Sub Class 176) My second son is diagnosed with Mild Autism (High Functional) Will this be an issue at the medical? Suhani
  8. hi everyone, Please could any one answer a question i have ....... i am in the middle of discussions with a migration agent (the emmigration group, based in uk) and everything has been going great untill the mention of my son's condition. He has autistic tendancies on the autistic spectrum disorder, he needs no medication and receives no medical help with his condition , he does receive funding for support staffing at school but only receives 50% support and this is about to be reviewed as he is about to start secondary school so hopefully this will be reduced. The emmigration group has responded to this by sending a letter saying that i should get a medical opinion ....quote(unfortunately your son's medical situation could have an adverse effect on a migration application -we have noticed in the last few months that australia and new zealand medical authorities are declining applications at lower levels of the autism spectrum than previously. Professional advice in this area is available from Dr . Baz at www.visamedicalopinion.com I understand that she charges around £400 etc.) My question is... does this sound like a con to anyone else as i would only be paying for an opinion not a medical and is this statement true as from what i have read on this subject it depends on each individual case etc. ????? Any information on this subject would be gratefully accepted :confused:

    Autistic Children

    Hello, We have some friends that are considering a move to Aus, they have two children aged 10 and 11 who both have moderate forms of autism. Does anyone have any experience with how this would affect their chances of a Visa application? Experiences of the level of support they might receive in Aus? The breadwinner is on the MODL. Any help/views/experiences much appreciated. George
