    DevPed sent another email just now.

    "We are looking into a CAT team appointment for difficult child This has Occupational Therapist (OT) and ST as
    well as behavioral person. I am looking into how far this moves his appointment.
    it looks like they have availability in late April or May"

    I had asked for social skills group and language therapy. Anyone know what CAT team and ST is?

    I think that would be Child Assistance Team and Speech therapy.

    Thanks, SRL.
    I found it on the autism center's website and you're close! Very brief description, but its Child Assessment Team. And lead by the neuropsychologist that stopped the previous evaluation cause they couldn't keep up with difficult child.
    No matter, I'm still insisting that whoever is involved in this speaks with the behavior therapist and possibly the psychiatrist prior to this appointment.
