    Autism and medicals Visa 189

    We received out invite for the 189 visa on Monday, booked our medicals for a few weeks time, however today my 5yr old has been escalated to a higher tier within the camhs for a potential diagnosis of autistic spectrum. Do we need to declare this during the medicals as he wok the be formally diagnosed for many months yet, if so how will it impact in them ? Thanks
  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:
  4. 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:
  5. Hi there, we have submitted our spouse visa application and have received a request for medicals for my husband's 2 non migrating children who wish to remain in the UK with their Mother. One of the children has been diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum with Dyspraxia. How could this affect our application and what are the alternatives for migration. Myself and our three children are Australian Citizens - will this help the application? Any tips would really help. The medicals are booked for late September. Regards
  6. 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.
  7. 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:
