    We always do the referral but are honest in our assessment of the level of need at school. I also discuss with parents the difficulties they are seeing at home compared to what we see in school and explain that any diagnosis needs to generally see an impact across school and home (I know its not the same for all but this is generally the guidelines for diagnosis). It could be that a child is masking in school and then it all comes out at home so its important not to dismiss and I generally have a discussion with the student to see if this is the case and if we can support to help that.
