Just wanted to say hello.

I am a mum of 2 and we are in the middle of the assessment process for my daughter who is 8. I think it's 99% certain that she has Aspergers, but she still hasn't been formally diagnosed.

It's been a bit of a shock as initially I didn't know much about Aspergers and what it meant long term, but I am starting to come to terms with things and just now trying to find out as much information as possible.

Hoping to share and learn from people who have children with Aspergers and have been in a similar position.

Hi Jess

Welcome :-). I am a newbie to the forum too.

Like yourself, I had no real knowledge about ASD until having my son. The diagnosis part is the hardest as you spend so much time concentrating on/talking about the negatives. Afterwards you can focus on the positive aspects and the unique personality you can see before you :-).

Hope services in your area are more speedy than in Fife!!!
