With no diagnosis in place George was still in no man’s land, it was hard to access other support networks without knowing what was wrong with George. It was difficult to explain his difficulties to others when the professionals themselves didn’t believe there was anything wrong with him.
We started family therapy at CAMHS and George received speech and language therapy due to problems pronouncing certain sounds. The speech and language therapist mentioned his problems with social skills and difficulties reading social cues.
We continued with family therapy, a big commitment meaning my husband had to have a day off work every other week to attend. George didn’t attend these sessions it was just for myself and my husband.
