I was wondering if anyone on here could help me... I'm an ex-teacher - I used to come on here years ago whilst doing my PGCE and NQT year but I've left the profession now to start my own family. I hope it's ok for me to ask this on here. My son is 3.5 and attends preschool - I've had concerns about his behaviour for a while - in a nutshell, he has an excessive need to be in control; has meltdowns over very small inconsequential things; very short attention span & never sits still. Stuff that all 3 year olds do to an extent but it is the intensity and frequency of his behaviour that has been concerning me. I spoke to preschool and they have had exactly the same worries about him - they initially put it down to his age but he isn't growing out of it and they feel there are possibly issues with him. They have referred him on to be seen by the area SENCO who if concerned will in turn refer him on to be seen by the Ed Psych. I guess what I'm asking is what to expect from the referral process. The preschool teachers obviously can't tell me whether they are suspecting a specific disorder although I do get the impression that possibly they are. What happens if the ed psych has concerns? I realise that I should know all this given my background but my memory is very fuzzy and I'm obviously too involved to be able to think clearly! Thanks in advance for any replies.
