I am suspecting that my 8yo daughter may have Aspergers. She already has a brother on the spectrum and for years I have written off her social immaturity and difficulties against other difficult girls in her kinder/school. But now I'm realising that her social problems might just stem from her own self. Additionally, she ticks quite a number of the Aspergers' traits. I guess they have always been there, I just never connected the dots before.
I'd really like to hear from other mums who have daughter's with Aspergers, or female relatives with it.
When did you know something was different with your daughter? What Aspergers traits did she possess? What sort of therapies did you undertake for her and did they benefit her?
At the moment I'm trying to get my head around the fact that she might have it and as there is so little literature on girls with Aspergers, I think the best source of information might be from other mums who have gone through it.
