Medical finding : Autism

javelinejaveline MelbourneTotal Reaction Points: 1Member
Hello. I am on a student visa living in Victoria for 1.5years with my spouse and 2 kids. I am planning to file for Independent skilled visa by 2017. Pasok kami sa points mag-asawa pero may findings ng mild austism ang panganay kong 7yo.

He is non-verbal but everything is normal. Sabi nga nila speech delay lang kasi well-functioning sya like any other 7yo. As the years goes by,ang ganda ng improvement nya esp when we lived here in Australia. Currently he is in grade 2 in a private school. He has his difficulties but he really does try to cope up. He understand things, he cant just verbalise most words.

I know the medical findings on him will affect our papers. Question is: is autism an automatic disqualification like TB or like other infectious disease? I was told by a lawyer that this does NOT fall under the medical term Intellectual disability which is an automatic ground for paper denial. He said that in these cases,you may present proofs and documents to prove the level of autism. If the govt will not exceed the Threshold of expense ( $30k/year)to be spent for the child,there is a chance na ma-grant ang visa.

For those who had similar experience or personal knowledge of such a situation,i hope you could shed some light. I hope to get some tips. Sana po matulungan nyo ako by sharing some infos dhil 2 po itong bata na bitbit ko. Hindi po tlga madali and nakakatakot. Ang complex lang tlga ng situation namin hndi bsta ordinary filing lang ang mangyayari sa amin, i guess. Thank u.

    Hi Javeline. Have you applied for a visa already? Naghihintay rin kami ng medical results ng panganay namin, 2yrs 10months old. May speech delay rin sya. Naassess na ng medical officer ung health results nya pero may hinihingi pa raw na further information from the department according sa status update ng health examinations nya. Sobrang nakakaba lang..

    My son was diagnosed with ASD at age 3 however he is very high functioning kaya Di na Kami nagdeclare about his condition. But since we are here na, We disclosed it to his school and our GP.

    Have you started him with speech therapy. My son din got speech delay but the speech therapy was very helpful. He is now 9.

    Hello po! Kamusta po ang result ng visa application nyo for the kids?

    I also have the same case with you.. we are also planning to move to australia. But my eldest son who is 7 y/o was diagnosed with mild autism. Just like your child he is well functioning like a normal kid. Hindi nga lang talaga sya nagsasalita pa ng maayos.

    Please please i hope makakuha ako ng any idea about his case.. if its possible for him to move to australia..

    I will really appreciate any feedback..
    Thank you in advance..

    I don't think it will affect your case. Autism is not really a sickness but it's something inborn.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
