Advice on how to speak to doctor - trying to get help for son
Hi everyone i have joined this group to try and help my son. He is 24 in September and has basically been at home for the last 3 years. He has no friends no job and is lost. He definitely has some type of SLD. I tried when he was younger to get him diagnosed but they said he wasnt extreme enough. Also he still wanted to join the RAF so we just got by. The RAF is gonna happen now and he just finds work to stressful, doesnt understand why things he does are different or get social cues. He is very articulate and without being in a stressful situation would not be noticeable. He has only once to twice had any outbursts that i have seen but had others when i wasnt there. Most jobs he gets fired from in a few days. Anyway this is a long hello but we need help, or rather HE needs help. I know we have to get to the docs to start the process off, so trying to do that tomorrow, but any advice on how to word or how to speak to the doc to get what we need is appreciated.
Many Thanks Xx
