Update my son has been referred to occupational health and had an assessment in July.
He has improved in some areas too.He has finally learned to zip up his coat so I'm pleased with that.

OT are fantastic. Finlay was diagnosed with ASD last year and at the same time referred to several other professionals. TAHMS for his violence and anxiety, a dietician for his eating and OT for his motor skills and sensory issues.

We saw OT 2 weeks ago and she was wonderful with Fin, managed to get him to engage with her which is more than any other professional has ever managed. She jumped straight into activities with Fin and picked up all of our concerns without us needing to mention them. She noticed his low muscle tone and the way he drools, now he favours using his thumb for things that an index finger would usually be used for (pointing, pressing down a ball of playdoh etc) and the fact he seems totally oblivious to who is around him and where his limbs are.

We go back on the 10th for a specific assessment to confirm he has dyspraxia but she is sure that's what these issues point to.

We had the assessment which went really well.My son really liked all the activities they did with him.
They don't think he had dyspraxia but they did pick up he has slightly hypermobile fingers.
We have a long report to read.They have recommended special scissors, pencil grips and cutlery.He is improving with his writing so we must keep it up over the long school holidays.
