Aspergers & ADHD diagnosis

Postby sidereturn » Sun Jan 16, 2022 4:39 pm

Our son has recently been diagnosed with Aspergers & ADHD.  Does anyone have any recommendations on professionals who can help advise parents on how to support a child with this profile but also on any classes dedicated to emotion recognition training?

Hard to say without knowing exactly what your child needs (they’re all different!).
Psychologist?
Paediatrician or CAHMS for adhd medication?
Speech and language therapist? (Language, social skills including recognising emotions/needs of others)
Occupational therapist? (Movement - for the adhd particularly - calming/sensory activities, zones of regulation etc for emotional regulation)
Key as a parent is understanding the WHY - when you know the triggers and why they are behaving in a certain way, it’s easier to work out strategies to help
Feel free to pm if helpful

Hi there. I cannot recommend more highly that you read Jonas Torrance’s book ‘Therapeutic Adventures with Autistic Children’. And you can contact him! He loves here in London.
