Not selecting the appropriate person to work

We have been referred to CAMHS a few times over the years. My son has complex issues. Issues I identified myself well over 12 years ago, these issues were finally accepted by a worker 2 years ago. He has being awaiting an ASD assessment/screening since then. He has been assigned 3 members of staff over the years (2 were trainees and 1 was newly qualified) and has also been seen by a psychiatrist. I believe the non engagement he now has regarding professionals, is down to the fact that he needs someone who is well experienced to deal with all that is going on for my son.
