Hi All, it's nice to be here. I'm Katie and I'm 22. On Tuesday 7th January I had a unofficial diagnosis of Autism. I took the AQ10 test and scored 9/10. I am now being referred to Integrated Autism Services for an official diagnosis. Due to scoring 9/10 I prepared for being officially diagnosed with Autism. If I scored lower then I wouldn't be so convinced. The waiting list is 3 months so it's going to be a long journey. I've signed myself up on this chat so that I can receive advice and support from other adults with Autism pre or post diagnosis. I would also like to let you know that you are welcome to join my Facebook group A Little Piece of Autism.
I am 21 with ASD.
Good luck with the diagnosis! I know how stressful it is waiting and just wanting to know. A facebook group is a great idea. If you need any support with the diagnosis please don't hesitate to message me : )
