hi Kath I have just recieved a diagnosis for my 11 year old son after wondering about him for a long time GP is the first step Have a detailed list of your concerns he should then refer you to a community childrens consultant who then will complete a detailed assesment this involves asking you (and your son if appropriate) lots of questions about his childhood from bith to present day this is scored using a special system ( we had 2 visits to do the assesmemt and one for results as well as questionaires to do at home/school)I found it was a long process and that you have to keep ringing for appointments and chasing things up, but a relief when you get a diagnosis comfirmed don`t give up
