We had dd2's 3 1/2yr old check up today where the mchn does a detailed checklist of development.
I've had a few concerns regarding her behavior as she has started tantrums, bedwetting and night waking, and a few other things have had me wondering (extremely affectionate, wants to be on me all the time, rough with her little brother) if there may be another reason, besides jealousy, behind it..
So DD scored extremely high (96/100) for all areas of the checklist but she scored 1 below the reportable level for indicators relating to social emotional development.. Which is generally when autism spectrum disorder or aspergers is suspected. I'm kind of glad that it's not all in my head and I know there may be a reason to it, but on the other hand, what do I do now?
The mchn has suggested a psychologist and to speak to her room leader at daycare for some ideas and that I can come back and speak to her whenever I like as well..
Has anyone else been in this situation?

yep with my dd, it is a really good idea to get professional help with it, my dd has been going to a psychologist for 5 months now and we have made so much progress. My dd was diognosed with mild aspergers. Its great once you get the help with it because then you can begin to understand them beter. Good luck honey.
