Hi all, I have a 9 yo dd who I have suspected from babyhood to be on the spectrum but Iv ignored and tried to manage symptoms on my own (badly). She is high functioning but I wonder if there are any benefits in seeking a diagnosis when she has no learning disability or physical impairments. she is a high achiever at school but I just am worried that I don't have the knowledge or tools for her as she enters her teens.
It allows her to get support if things get worse for what ever reason. She might not need any support now, but it's a safety net just in case :) Better to have it than not!
Exactly why I have made an appointment in case things get worse. Or invade I'm damaging her more by not have bg the tools to provide to her to cope. I'm very scared for her and her future
