Dear Concerned mom,
From your post I am not sure whether you have received a formal diagnosis for your son; it is therefore very difficult for me to say what symptoms to look out for. In general, if your son is coping well and is happy, there is nothing more you need do at this time; continue with the great work you are achieving. If you feel the need you can have him assessed academically once or twice (at most) a year. If you do decide to go this route, it is important to keep the testing environment very calm, preferably to the extent he is not aware this is an assessment. It is wonderful to hear that he has come so far in this time.
All the best,
Delia
