Aspergers diagnosis & K1 visa?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I've recently received my NOA2 approval and just getting together my documents I'll need for the next stages of the process. I've searched past threads but can't find info that would specifically apply to me & would be so grateful for any advice.

 

On my medical summary from my doctor (apparently required for UK applicants) it notes a past diagnosis I received for Aspergers Syndrome / ASD after having some stress and difficulty in school. I was never recommended any kind of treatment or medication for this and have been living life quite happily since - got my university degree, met my fiance, planning to get married. I was never diagnosed with any kind of anxiety, depression, etc or any kind of co-morbid condition. 

 

Has anyone else with a single diagnosis of Aspergers / very mild ASD had to go through additional evaluation or require evidence from a doctor for their condition? Or will the embassy doctor just not care about something like this? 

 

Thanks so much for any help!

It’s not a communicable disease nor indicative of an ongoing mental health issue. It’s not a current diagnosis..No concern to your immigration medical

It's not a problem. My son has a diagnosis of ASD and we emigrated last year. If you can then take any relevant documents to the medical but I wouldn't overly concern yourself. I had reports for my son but the doctor at the medical only briefly read them and was more focused in chatting with my son as an assessment.

Thank you! I hope your son has adjusted well.

Yes, thank you! He initially struggled with the change. It was a big ask of him but he has admirably risen to the challenge.

 

Here's the list of what I took to the medical:

  • The completed U.S. Medical Questionnaire (answered truthfully!)
  • Child's immunisation records
  • Child's patient summary
  • A letter from child's SENCO briefly outlining his current difficulties and behaviour within school
  • Child's latest school report
  • Child's current EHC Plan
  • A letter from the GP detailing current treatment for child's condition ( cost £15.50)
  • Report from Educational Psychologist from 5 years ago (the most current "professional" paperwork I have for my son)

Here are the links for our medical and interview experience:

 

If you have any questions you can DM me if you're more comfortable with that.

I'm so glad to hear it! And thank you for the info, it's very helpful to know exactly what to expect. I'll see if I can locate any of the old paperwork just to be on the safe side.
