    Hi @catherineann
    Sounds like you have a lot going on!  It is very frustrating that his genetics test was postponed, but it will be re-booked when they can safely assess again.  From my experience genetics testing takes time, so even after the appointment usually there is a wait before they can let you know any results.

    I would start with your son's school, how are they helping him? working with him? can they share any advice on what works in school?  There will also be local groups that could support you and we have some great family services here at Scope take a look, in particular Navigate and parents connect.

    what kind of advice are you after?

    take care
