HI, I teach Reception and I am the SENCo but I'm new in post and obviously don't have all the answers! A little boy in my class was showing behaviours that made me think 'autistic sprectrum' I didn't use these words directly with mum but I think nursery had previously. Mum said she was seeing the paediatrician and I got a conors rating scale and another questionnaire to fill in. She was then referred somewhere else (she has never told me directly where) and child went to be assessed in some sort of playcentre. This happened this week and mum came to me and said she was told they don't think there are any problems and that he may just be slightly later developing. She assures me I will receive a report soon. Any advice on what I should do now? I still have concerns and the behaviours haven't subsided. I think it would be a good idea to involve autism outreach (even without a diagnosis) beause they will be able to offer me some practical advice but mum was difficult initially, hiding information, not telling me things etc and I think that now she has been told there are no problems she won't give consent for anything...how should I proceed with this as teacher and as SENCo? Thanks for any help!
