Autism and early menstruation - wow
I have just joined the group and as a grandmother, I will need advice on occasion. I have 3 beautiful granddaughters, ages 12, 10 and 3. My 10 yr old granddaughter was diagnosed with Autism at 2 years old. Last summer, she started menstruating. She does not understand what has happened and it is not easy for her to communicate. She has done very well at trying to learn, speaking clearer and not shying away from others but this was a hard pill to swallow. We were hoping she would be a late bloomer, perhaps 16, but 10 - wow! Has anyone in this community had experiences of this nature coupled with positive feedback?
