Recommend a doctor for the autism spectrum in Canberra?

By zowieben - 20 June 2012 4

Hi, my 17 year old son has recently been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome and is suffering anxiety and depression and may have to go on medication.

Can anybody recommend a good doctor on the southside that has experience working with teenagers on the autism spectrum?

Thanks.

What’s Your opinion?

The good news is your son is by far not the only Asperger in the ACT. There is a well run organisation in the ACT you could contact who specialise with this issue.

Dr Dahal @ Waramanga Medical Centre… special interests in paeds and mental health so a good combination there for your young lad…

I would also suggest the Blackdog institute: http://www.blackdoginstitute.org.au/ quite a good website

The University of Canberra in Bruce/Belconnen has a special unit that deals with Teenagers of all sorts and costs a maximum of $20.00 a visit where as the ‘specialist’ can charge up to $160.00 a visit but do the same thingm I found UC fantastic with my boy.
