Re: Child behaviour issues? - Paediatrician needed

I also have children with ASD and ASHD so have some personal experience. In your situation I’d follow the advice of the NHS paed that you saw. You do still have concerns after 6 months so ask for a review. A paed saying ‘wait and see’ in a situation like this with quite a young child with a few fact...

Re: SEN Help

You may find that October is pretty quick - when we had a private OT assessment (possibly what your daughter would need of it's sensory issues) we waited for few months to get seen.  It's certainly worth calling around some of the private clinics though to see what availability they have - Therapy 4...

Re: Looking for non-selective private secondary or prep

It might be worth looking at Broomwood if you think a couple of extra years at a Prep would help. But I think it’s worth bearing In mind that demographic pressures mean that all of the local independent secondaries have become more selective over the past few years and competition for places is more...

Re: Wanted: a Flute

Just Flutes in Croydon is well worth a visit if you have time over half term. They are very friendly and knowledgeable and have a wide range in stock. They operate a rental scheme too.

Re: Developmental Paediatric Assessment/Multi-disciplinary assessment

Daphne Keen is very well respected but her waiting list to be seen privately can also be quite long. We decided to wait for the NHS wheels to turn in the end, in order to be able to get the onward referrals for support post diagnosis, which meant we have stayed with the same team (good continuity). ...

Re: PICA

By your doctor, do you mean your GP? Do you have any other concerns about your daughter's development? You could ask to be referred to community paediatrics for a developmental review as that would usually be the first step to accessing help via the NHS.

Re: Home for Lego?

There is a local charity, SEN Talk, that offers Lego therapy to help with social skills in children with ASD, ADHD and other SEN. Perhaps they would be able to use it in their sessions (which are excellent!) http://fis.wandsworth.gov.uk/kb5/wandsw ... ZtZJQXWFeY

Re: Seeking weekend job for my son

A friend's 16 year old worked for Pizza Hut. She says they were happy to employ her daughter as minimum wage is quite a bit less than younger teens. So he may have some luck with the bigger chains.

Good primary/prep for ADHD

My youngest is in Y2 and has ADHD. She's very bright, but because of her difficulties with inattention and focus she's not achieving to her potential at school and is becoming unhappy and frustrated. I don't think her current school is a good fit for her and I'd like to look around at alternatives. ...

Re: Should I be worried that my landlord has sent me a Section 21 notice?

Depending on how your contract is worded it could automatically continue if neither of you gives notice, so your landlord is doing the right thing.

Re: Fitting 3 car seats on back seat

We have a Toyota Verso - not stylish but so practical and very compact - great for squeezing down streets and easy to park. Three car seats fit in no bother and it's easy to do up the belts if you don't have isofix. Once you have 3 children of your own it's very handy to have the extra seats that po...
