Im Matthew, 37 and I am about to go on the journey to be referred for an assessment. I have known deep down that I do have Autistic traits for a number of years and now is the time to confront it.
My best guess is that I have Aspergers. I function but it takes sooooo much effort. I have read and learned from books about body language, anthropology psychology.
When I am tired, all the learning goes out of the window and I can be a little insensitive. Not an excuse, but it can be difficult.
i know I will have to wait 3/4 months but hey. Can anyone tell me what to expect? Is it questionnaires etc? I know that I hit all the developmental markers as a toddler (walking, talking) but that’s all that my parents can remember. I can remember primary school vividly. Including first year. Is that typical?
Anyway say hi.
I don't think so. I found clubs to be miserable places. I always went home alone!
