Better ASD Services and Referral/diagnosis service for our children on the Isle of Wight
My name is Cathryn i am a mum of 4 boys living on the isle of wight one of which was referred to the ADRC last march (9 months ago!) for an asd diagnosis. The ADRC have collapsed due to an overwhelming ammount of asd referrals and basically being unfit for purpose.
This is NOT our children's fault and they are being made to suffer because the national health service did not do their job properly in ensuring the money being spent was on a service that was usable and fit for purpose.
They are also cutting funding in our primary schools.
There is currently NO service and no sign of any other provision either,letters that have been promised have not been written, and parents have been left in the dark whilst our children struggle on!
It's unfair and morally that they're not getting the service they deserve.
We have been waiting 9 months!The maximum waiting time is supposed to be 3 months!All the while we as a family like many others struggle with a child who clearly has asd without any of the proper support in place for him or us! Please sign for a better service, one that our children deserve!!
