being diagnosed with ASD later in life
I have read comments about being diagnosed with ASD later in life. My son is Autistic and we have a lot of associated traits but I have suffered anxiety and have a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder which I am still being treated for. All my life I have struggled and I wonder how as an adult I can go about getting assessed to see if I have Autism. I asked my doctor once a while ago and she said it was just my depression and wouldn't refer me. Any ideas of who to go to would be helpful. My son is 7 and at a special school and was diagnosed at 6 years old. It was so obvious to me but even his diagnosis took 2 years. Thanks.
