  1. 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
  2. Hi, Please advise if if our visa would be rejected on grounds of medical conditions as my baby was born with Microcornea(congenital disorder). We are processing our 887 visas today, however need some information. I have completed all the conditions for 475 visa, however don't know if baby's medical would be a factor in our visa rejection.

    bipolar disorder

  4. Hi there, I'm quite new on here but have been reading and learning a lot on here over the last couple of weeks. I was up until 3am this morning reading about the discrimination some poor people on here have suffered due to having disabilities. We are at the stage where we are about to submit for a 176 SS visa but have just realised that my son's medical condition could mean that he fails the medical. He has been diagnosed as having a significant expressive language and speech disorder or phonological disorder. His speech therapist mentioned that he has an aspect of Dyspraxia but I just called the hospital and they said that they wouldn't give him that label, it's not in any reports (as far as I know) so there's no need to put that on any forms. He is 4 years old, very bright and has no other problems except for his speech, which is improving all the time due to Speech Therapy and all the work we do with him at home. I have to say that I am really gutted at the thought that this dream could be all over for us and am not really sure what to next. Do we get a medical done for him now to find out if he will pass before wasting time, money etc on the visa (have already spent on agent and Vetassess fees) or do we just give up?? We were going to try and get a job offer then go this year on a 457 visa, but what's the point if we will have to come back after 4 years? I'd be really grateful of any advice.
  5. Hi: I am qualified to diagnose Autism Spectrum Disorder but I am in the UK. My cousin's daughter is 8, and she is displaying very clear behaviours of Autism. My cousin is at her wits end taking the child to doctors etc and being told there is nothing wrong. My cousin is in Oz. I know how the system works in the UK, but does anyone know how she can get a referral in Oz? Does she have to see a psychologist or a GP in the first instance? And if so, how can she do this? Can she speak to the school? Would the school be willing to speak to me from the UK? Is there anyone on here who has any experience of dealing with this? I'm so concerned that my cousin's little girl will not be getting the help that she needs. Her other little girl is going to a private school next year, both children are very clever. The younger one is automatically granted a place with the school when she turns 12, but if she has this diagnosis will this affect her place at the school? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hi there I'm a journalist based in the UK and I'm hoping someone on this forum might be interested in talking to me about a feature I'm currently writing. I'm looking for people who've suffered from SAD in the past (probably back in the UK) and then moved to Australia. I'm interested to know if you experienced any symptoms once you arrived in Australia, and I'm also keen to know if SAD had any bearing on your decision to move there. The piece is for the Guardian website, please PM me asap if you would like to share your thoughts on this. Thanks a lot Joanne
