Can you please help me to find out how I can get my son

This answer was rated:

Hello Can you please help me to find out how I can get my son assessed for dyspraxia please?
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, what are your symptoms? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: I don't think there is medication for dyspraxia. I am dyspraxic and I know the symptoms are the same as what my son is showing. He is very clumsy, has problems with sequences, his joints are week and goes over on his ankles. He is struggling at school and is starting to switch off.
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a doctor about this?
Customer: Yes we have seen 3 doctors and they don't know where to send me for a referral. I know Lincolnshire doesn't have the funding for it so I need him to be referred out of county.
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: I don't think so

I asked a question a couple of hours ago and still not got an answer and paid £5. Is this a con and I have just been duped?

Hi,

Apologies for the delay,

How exactly can we help you?
Are you looking for a Developmental Pediatrician referral details in the private sector?
Or is there something else that we can help you with?
Warm regards

Hello. I need to know which county near to Lincolnshire assesses children for dyspraxia on the nhs please as Lincolnshire doesn't.
