Hello Stacey,

Thank you for your post and I am sorry to hear of the struggle you are having at the moment.

I am including a link here for an article called 'Your rights to a diagnosis' for you to have a look at.

If you would also like to email us on info@livingautism.co.uk, we will be able to give you further details on how to go about getting a diagnosis.
