School now that was a tough one

It become apparent we had to do something once my son had started school. He really struggled, he was not able to talk at all in the classroom, he sometimes laughed outside. But was really worrying is that he was struggling to do tasks. He would often freeze up and not be able to do a simple task like drawing, or an activity. It was common for him to sit for 15 minutes with the pencil/crayon in his hand and be unable to do anything.

The teachers were supportive. The Nurse didn't quite understand what was happening. I explained that he struggled to talk to anyone, we did all the assessment and he come up normal. The suggestions were made were for speech therapy, which was already happening and a referral to a paediatrician. This was where the process become frustrating.
