Any Momma's whose toddler has aspergers??
So, since my oldest DD was young, we thought something wasn't quite "right" with her. She started showing lots of signs of Aspergers very early, but I ignored it thinking it's something she would grow out of, or was told I was overreacting. She is going to be 3 next month and as she gets older, she's easier to handle kind of, but the signs were getting more clear.
Then, I took care of a boy with Asperger's and their behavior was almost IDENTICAL! So, I decided to suck it up and finally take her to her Pediatrician. Her pediatrician also agrees and thinks that it's Aspergers and says its very hard to get a diagnosis with such a high functioning child, and it's even more difficult in girls as it is with boys. But, we've now got a referral to Children's in Seattle for an evaulation for her.
I was wondering what to expect, and natural things we can do for her, as I don't believe in medicating children unless 100% necessary.
