    Hi after 3 weeks of waiting my bloods have finally got to my CO, problems with the system i was told!! Just checked and it has been updated and Ethan has been referred. We knew he would as he has mild autism although this does not really affect his life. The doctor was happy with the information we supplied from the school, autsim outreach etc, so suppose just now gotta wait it out. Really hoping that they dont want a specialist report as they are very expensive (so i have read in pio).

     

    Fingers crossed Lisa

    Im sure you will be alright but it would be worth getting a specialists report or your doctor to do a report in the mean time to save time if they ask for it. My wife has had her meds refered due to her crohns and we submitted her specialists report with the meds and it wasnt to bad cost wise. The referals take ages we are at day 29 now so should get them seen soon.

     

    Good luck with it and i hope it works out quickly for you.

    Thanks both for the info and support. We did get a letter from our gp stating that he has never seen him regarding his asd, nor does he take any medications. Infact the doctor said as far as he was concered he didnt have it due to good eye contact and speech!!! however i feel that was mainly down to years of good "retraining" by school staff, social skills training etc. We were advised years ago by an agent that we wouldnt get a visa because of the asd so really hoping i "can let them know" that it is possible. Thebacons, i was looking at your thread on pio, i read on one of the threads that specialist reports can cost upto £600 so really didnt want to spend that amount if not needed. The problem is some people see asd and think of rain man or some really bad mentally ill person. Ethan is a fully functioning, well adjusted polite boy with good communication, he would be able to hold down a job if only people wouldnt judge on paper!!

    fingers crossed Lisa

    It's such a frustrating time, we waited 3 weeks with my referral I had TB, then chased the case officer and the next day signed a health undertaking and visa granted, I only supplied info currently on file with my medical records I did not submit a specialist report. Fingers crossed for you that your visa will be issued with no problems Claire

    Thanks Claire, when agents say you have no hope its a worrying time to get this far!!! Lets hope they can see past the words "autism spectrum disorder" and see a wonderfull and talented young man.

    Hi Lisa,

    We came out nearly 4 years ago and our youngest has ASD, he was 11 when we came out and all we had to supply was a consultant from the hospital in Walsall.

    But the doctor at Birmingham where we had the medicals done wasnt really interested in his ASD, just as long he was healthy.

    I hope all goes well for you all :)

    Thank you thats great news and very reasurring. Can i ask does your son have any assistance at school? Ethan is in a mainstream school but does have access to a TA but as part of a group of children. He seems very excited about coming but i am worried that new children wont be used to his ways as his class mates are now growing up with him.

     

    Thanks Lisa

    p.s I was born in Walsall!!
