Hi all, I am pretty new here and looking for other mums (& dads) to chat with/share advice.
My 3yo DD is in the process of being evaluated and some days I just feel really lost & alone in our struggles.
There is a local ASD play group but I simply can't afford to take the time off work to go.
Dd was due to have her first 'string' of psyc appointments last week which I had to push back due to lack of funds.
She has already had 2 other evaluations at pre-school that sudgest she needs further assessment/assistance.
Her Paed is convinced she has OCD, possible ADD & High functioning ASD.
DH is convinced she's just 'naughty'
One of my clients is a school teacher & sudgested I just 'try' and treat her as though she's not naughty & does have high functioning ASD & see how we go eg if life is any easier.
Yesterday was the most stress free day we've had for as long as I can remember.
I know this doesn't mean she has ASD.
In hoping there are other parents out there who can sympathise with how confusing & lonely the daily struggles can be.
