Anyone with children with Aspergers here?
I'm curious -- if you have a child/stepchild with Aspergers...
1) Did they first get diagnosed with ADHD/ADD then later diagnosed with Aspergers? (I have read this is common)
2) Did you suspect it was Aspergers, and why? (What were the telltale signs for you?)
3) How long did the process take for diagnosis? (From first pediatrician visit to diagnosis)
** I am asking because we see the pediatrician this week to discuss behavioral issues with my SS7. We have had meetings with his teacher and behavior specialist at school and the consensus seems that he exhibits a lot of areas that seem to fit the spectrum. It will be interesting to see what the pediatrician says! In a lot of ways it would be a relief to have a diagnosis so that we can get some help in order to help him!
