Hi, three things that should be looked at.

1.   Flintshire Camhs need more training in recognising autism in girls. As do all people (teachers/therapy workers etc..) who come into contact with our girls.  Masking plays a big part in our girls lives and it's becoming boringly repetitive to hear "she's fine" or "it's the parenting"

2.   Clearer guidelines on accepting private diagnosis. The company we have used would be accepted in Denbigh but not Flintshire. Highly regarded company used by numerous NHS to bring waiting lists down but sadly due to internal red tape Flintshire are digging their heels in...

3.   Better understanding and acceptance of Sensory Processing Disorder by all who come into contact with our children. This is either not recognised or heard of yet it quite often goes hand in hand with ASD.
