Over the last few weeks and months, I have been asking my self the question. Why my parents didn't seek diagnosis while I was a child. I saw many educational psychologists and other professionals.
I got through so many pencils, because I used to chew them, my concentration levels at school was poor (it still is). I started school in the late 70's, even at an early age i was struggling, from what i can remember even before I started school there were problems.
I remember having the struggles of being singled out because my work wasn't up to scratch.
I'm now 47 and stuck on a waiting list that is making me feel anxious.
It got called different things in those days, unless it was classic Autism as described by Kanner.
