On a recent trip to our local hospital, there was a miscommunication with a consultant dealing with our sons' ingrowing toe nails. ¬†It was evident the consultant was unclear as to why I gave answer to her question as follows: ¬†
Consultant " Did the specialist explain everything about the surgery for your son on your last visit?"
My reply " I cannot answer the question as I dont know what everything refers to. I can repeat was was said but do not know if this was 'everything as I am not medically trained'."¬†
Today the surgery took place. The consultant said her team would benefit from someone on the spectrum who could explain what it is like for us to communicate and to facilitate their communication with people on the spectrum.
