Can someone please refer me to an Aspergers specialist/expert to evaluate my 11-year old son? We are based in Pretoria. I contacted a well-known school for assistance, only to be told that we need to meet with the therapist's assistant first to "filter" our request as the expert is very busy. Naturally, this initial consult costs R650.00 with no guarantee of ever meeting with the therapist, should our concerns not prove valid to them.
I am just so tired of being taken advantage of. My son is having an extremely hard time and we are desperate to help him, but I have become wise to opportunistic people taking advantage of distraught parents.
I just want to discuss our concerns with a qualified expert who would be able to either confirm our suspicions of Aspergers or point us in another direction.
