Great news,
Managed to source a Ed Psych who will come to the house on Saturday afternoon (weather permitting)to do full 2hr assessment on the wee man. Delighted as he will have report completed a few days later allowing us a week(and a bit) turnaround on this.

lins, we got an independent Ed Psych report done in advance, and submitted it at the medical to the DMP - our ed psych was very good, we explained to her exactly what we needed the report for, so as well as the usual test results etc, we asked her to give a longer term view/ independent living etc. I'm pretty sure the Ed Psych report was the reason we didn't get an excessive demand letter. pm me if you want a copy of ours to see what she wrote... (not Aspergers, but needed it to rule out learning disability etc - youngest has cp)

Glad you got it sorted so quickly (and on a Saturday too). Hope it goes well and you're soon onto the next stage - and those hoops that we have to keep jumping through are lined with chocolate.

I just wanted to ask a quick question to you as my husband also has Crohns, he had his original medical done by the high commission back in London, our PR papers are currently in at the moment and we're waiting to hear back about having medicals done. Did your husband have to have another medical done here in Canada?

Hi Rooander, Im not sure if my application process might make a difference. I think that it does. Im a Canadian sponsoring my UK spouse. (We both happen to have Crohn's but as far as I know no one but you guys knows about me having it!) my husband just did the one medical here in the UK and his medical had to be done before we sent in the application. so far he has not been asked to do any further medicals or for any further information at all. I have been approved as the sponsor, and his application has been sent to London. On Ecas it says "Medical Results Received". so not sure if that might mean that the medical part is done for us with no issues (hopefully).

Im not sure if Ive just confused the issue for you more on this or not!
good luck with yours. hopefully someone who knows more about this and your type of application will add to this topic.

Hiya Linsy, been there done that,

Our son has aspergers and ADHD, we got the excessive demand letter to, back in May 2010, finally heard he had been accepted in August 2010, and got our visa in Jan 2011.

If you need any help or advice pm me and I will help in anyway I can - we had to put forward a plan to support him for the first five years.

Good luck with everything and take some reassurance that it does happen and you do get through it!!

You should note that VW092906 is a spousal sponsorship so "excessive demand" doesn't apply their case.
