At the beginning of December last year we had our appointment at the hospital to find out where Little Bird sits on the ASD scale. It had been a long wait to get this appointment but after 2 years we were pleased it was finally here. The hospital met Little Bird for a 45 minute assessment where he was asked questions whilst they played with him. I do not really know what happened in that room as Little Bird did not talk about it afterwards but he came out happy and was not phased by the meeting at all.
A week later I went back to the hospital for an intense meeting to talk about my boy. I was at the hospital for about 4 hours and I was surprised to learn when I arrived that before I left that day I would have a diagnosis.
