What you need is simply a good local Child Psychiatrist. and they will be familiar with the difficult diagnosis of possible schizophrenia in children. I very much doubt that many, if any, SA shrinks specialize so narrowly, as they would have to turn away so many children in need, and wouldn't have enough of such a narrowly defined group, to keep them usefully busy. Maybe among our medical schools there might be one shrink with a special interest in children with schizophrenia, but I would expect most or all child psychiatrists to be capable of assessing and helping such a child.
And Obvious makes a good point - no such diagnosis can be usefully made by ANYONE except a properly trained and experienced child psychiatrist - and if that person were for some reason not abailable to help, then they would be best placed to know who else might be well able to do so

if the child has been diagnosed with this - surely it was done by a shrink? and this shrink will assist with other shrinks for treatment........
