Hi all, I'm after some advice for parents of a KS2 pupil in my class who are awaiting an ADOS assessment. School has referred as we feel he is somewhere on the ASD spectrum and he is really struggling socially and emotionally. Parents are anxious about what to tell their son when he goes for assessment. He's a bright boy and they don't want to mention ASD yet if at all. What do others think? I really don't know what advice to offer them and have suggested perhaps they could discuss this further with the ADOS team? School is currently providing him with some extra support and we say that this is to help him. We haven't used the ASD label either. I know that some parents and young people are happy to use the terminology. Any thoughts would be gratefully received. Thanks!
