    Hello @SarahLS and welcome to our community.  How are you today?

    Oooft 4 boys?!  You must be one busy mum  :D  I hope you had a lovely half term.

    I think you will find lots on our community helpful.  For instance, we have an Autism and Aspergers discussion board where people swap stories and ask questions.  While, we have a Parents and Carers section too.

    How are you finding the diagnosis process?  Has it been impacted by covid at all?  

    Please let us know if we can help you in any way.  Many of our members have lived experience of ADHD and autism so could offer you support.

    Thank you everyone!! @Cher_Scope we’ve currently been waiting 8 months but it’s been over 2 years since I first contacted CAMHS, it feels much longer though. Thank you all again we’ve just had a massive meltdown so very much needed xx

    I can imagine that it would feel like much longer @SarahLS! Have they given any indication of how much longer it might be until you get a diagnosis? 

    Sorry, that must be difficult to handle. How are things now?

    Hi again @SarahLS - Scope has a supportive programme called 'Navigate' that offers support to a parent who has a child on the pathway to getting a diagnosis. Please see: https://www.scope.org.uk/family-services/navigate/
    I've only heard very positive remarks from parents who've used it, so I hope perhaps you'll have a look. Hoping you all have a peaceful rest of the evening. :)
