My daughter is not a small child,but a 24 year old ,she has always been very active,until recently she has been showning symptoms of autism. I am not at all familiar with this condition. But every time I look for information about this condition,i can only find stuff on small children and not on adults. Is there anyone that can help me with this.

I would look at the site AutismSpeaks and see if they have information on there for adults. My son is 3 so I have no info on an older child.

check out autismspeaks.org (plenty of diagnosis assistance) 

talk to her dr regarding this, you will need evaluation from psychologist and other various therapists too. the eval will take 5-8 hrs you will need tons of documentation from school records and other appt she may have had. 

what are her symptoms may i ask?

I am only familiar with children and autism. There are adults in this group who do have autism, so I will bump your post up the list and hopefully one of them will make their way in here!
