If he has been diagnosed as ASD, shouldn't you already have a report for him? You can check if that can be used. I don't know what the waiting lists might be if you go to KKH, but you can go to a private educational psychologist. Other parents here can probably recommend one.

I think one mother recently posted that a report diagnosing autism never expires. You may want to check with MOE about this. If they won't accept, getting a private psychologist to test and produce a report should be fairly quick (matter of weeks).

Check already, they said the report need to be 2 yrs from the date of assessment. So my son report cannot. Now need to get a report. According to KK CDU, my son is high performing ASD but at times there are cases by default they need to do Chinese due to the way the test is conduct. That will b nightmare for us. He don't do Chinese Compre and Cloze that's where the marks are. He can get 0 or less than 10 marks for it.

The get a recommendation for an ed. psych. and get another report done. No point worrying about the result until the tests are done. You can probably arrange an initial consulation first. His school will also have to support the request to be exempted, so you might want to talk to his teacher as well.

I do have a special child like yours. I could understand what you are going thru.

Get the school counsellor to write you a letter to IMH and make an appointment with the psychologist and OT to assist you with the letter direct to MOE.

My girl is in P3 now, I'm already doing all these for her. I also want her out of Chinese Exam.

Hope it helps.
