Hello everyone, my name is samy and am a mum of a 4 years old girl who's just been diagnosed with ASD (Mild).. Now I still don't know much about autism and that's one reason why am here... also I won't deny that am seeking some peace as inside me am still not that much convinced that my baby is autistic
Hi samy5204, firstly dont be afraid to have second thoughts or worries for having your daughter diagnosed by having ASD, i have gone 21 years of knowing that i am autistic and not being diagnoesed until march 2017. It is common to be worried as a parent who has a child with ASD wondering if they will fit in as they are older, i have a question but you dont have to answer if you dont wish to, the question is, who was your daughter diagnosed, and what pushed you to get the diagnosis done? If you are really that unsure about the diagnosis of your daughter speak i would suggest you speak with your GP, and possibly look on the National Autistic Society website for more information. As it is I am a grown up and I am still coming to terms with my diagnosis but i am getting there with support from local services., I hope that is helpful for you.
