Hope you had a good wkend break. Thanks for the comments you had for my decision. Well, well. I am still looking for the resource i can possibily find. Two things that come to my mind, one is my boy's gut problem, another is the new therapy RDI program i want to embark on.
some background on my boy. I decided not to bring him to KKH for assessment as i know him well. at his age, 2 years and 3 months, most likely i will get a date for review 6 months later. without it, i probably can't enjoy the service provided by KKH.
For mummies who has gotten the clinical assessment in KKH, the "more than words" henan';s program is quite good. You can subsidies from the gov so you only need to pay half of the program fee. I wish i could get that too.
My boy has some atopic rashes as the GP terms it. and his constipation problem pains him a lot. his poo is super duper big, which brings him a lot of pain in the first few pushes. Hes now very reluctant to poo. I wanted to get him allergic test, now i guess i can't because i dont have a good reason in government system to do that. my next step is probably to find a DAN! doctors (expensive, i know). Only two clinics i find online are

Currently My boy is receiving 2hr/day ABA session at home. I came across some talks on RDI approach, and i like their philosophy. however, i dont think mummies here in the support group use this approach much. I read somewhere online that their service is in the range of $200-300/hr, which is more expensive of my home ABA session. There are 5 RDI-certified consultants in SG now. I wonder if any mummy knows about any of them. afterall it's parent training program, i can use my half day to get involved.

Lastly, if my boy doesn't get assessed in KKH, does it mean that he can't go gov OT program? it seems that he needs some OT training, i just wonder if he can get any help from gov subsidies before i send him to private
Mummies, need your honest opinions on my planning for my son's therapies. Thank you very much.
