Is my Dr wrong? Please help me!

I have just found your site and wonder if anyone can help with a query.
My Son was diagnosed with SPD around two years ago, he is now 6 and very hard work!!! Yesterday we attended a Spectrum Autism Assessment with him and I ended up distraught at an insistence the Dr made. My son was not diagnosed Autistic spectrum (which I expected) but the Dr said "he was probably born with some small sensory problems but your Postnatal Depression has made it much worse and now he has severe SPD a tendency to dispraxia, learning difficulties and fine motor problems" she totally blamed my depression for everything that is wrong with my child!
Can anyone put me on to some research that backs up this Dr's comments or should I just go ahead and report her to the medical council? I am so angry at the way I was treated and even walked out of the meeting at one point.
Please if anyone can either confirm or debunk her it would be much appreciated.
