Hi all. It's been a while since I was around regularly. Son is doing well now - taking GCSES atm and looking forward to college and A levels next year.

My older daughter is nearly 13 and over the past year it's become more and more obvious that she is also on the spectrum. Been to see school today and they totally agree so we have referred her to start the dx process.

Any advice on how I broach the subject with her?

I can't advice on specifics but my guess is she has already started to work it out for herself that she might be on the spectrum and doesn't know how to tell you.

Thanks:)  You were quite right - she got there long before I worked my way round to it, and was more than amenable to going through the dx process!  phew.

I'm pleased to hear that was easier than you expected :).
