Hey guys...im about to enter rant mode
so i open my emails and see that DSA have written back to me...i had to be re-diagnosed with my conditions as im over 16 and uni wouldnt accept childhood diagnosis...the university referred me to an qualified educational psychologist (not my adhd specialist he is seperate) who assured me he could diagnose all my learning problems as well as my ADHD which he did taking a nice chunk of my purse( which i was assured would be refunded..and wasnt) with him for his troubles...i applied for my accomodations and extra funding with the report & recommendations from my educational psychologist of my ADHD & LD'S as well as the identical ADHD diagnosis from my consultant....

Reply is in post below

<O:p




i am so fuming..i was assured by the ed psychologist that his diagnosis was relevant...add to that the university referred me to him..i have lost money and will have to have more assessments due to this further delaying receipt of my accomodations >.< as well as being grilled about my disabilities at a test center...more probing, more going through my difficult and painful history.. i have seriously had it with my university and student bloody finance...

It sounds like a racket to me, I wouldn't be surprised if the university and this "qualified educational psychologist" are in cahoots and there are kickbacks involved!

Florence, I hope that you get some satisfaction after all this. I wonder if there is some place you can complain. Others will probably be put thru such crappy hoops too. Geez, that's enraging!

yeah me too :( im so annoyed...i might as well have just seen only my ADHD specialist (the only diagnosis they are accepting), im paying through the nose for all of this and just hate being prodded and poked at by specialists...im now going to have to see two seperate specialists for another diagnosis of dyspraxia and meares irlin again even though i've got childhood and adult diagnosis aleady...

i will be demanding a refund from the ed. psychologist and a full explanation from both parties as to why i was mislead and im going to be taking up grievance proecudures because my work is seriously and has seriously been affected by my conditions...

its too bad my adhd consultant can't verify the dyspraxia diagnosis >.<

To me this is done I feel because people dont want to be bothered really ,dont wanna tell ya the truth and If they run you around enough maybe you'll just give in and give up.I could be wrong about this too but if people really wanted to help you.Wouldnt common sense logic tell you they would from the get go? At work our little joke is it would take too much effort and work to do something that makes sense.lol
