How to Get a Diagnosis in Australia Part 2

In this episode Jane McFadden interviews Dr. Jacinta Thompson who is a clinical psychologist and has a PhD in clinical neuropsychology. Jacinta speaks about her own experience with misdiagnosis, where she was wrongly diagnosed with narcolepsy when really she had ADHD/ASD.

We talk about what services/therapies we can receive in Australia through Medicare/NDIS and private health funds and what you CAN do to help yourself if you are not yet able to receive a diagnosis.
