There is a child in my F2 class who appears to have many traits of ASD. Examples are little interest in others, plays alone, repetitive play, some extreme sensory reactions, lack of ability to take part in conversations, repeating stock phrases rather than building own sentences, lack of understanding of language, repetitive physical hand movements. The Ed Psych has seen him twice and has ruled out ASD because of "willingness to engage". At the time she last saw him "it's your turn" was one of his stock phrases. She has said it's global delay (working at 2.5 years) rather than anything specific. I'm inclined not to agree as the language issues are very particular. So where do we go from here? This child really needs some 1:1 support ready for moving into year 1 and I'm not sure that global delay will do the trick, particularly as there are no behaviour issues. Having involved the Ed Psych would it be wrong of me to ask the parents to go to the GP for ASD assessment?
