I have a 4 year old girl who is driving me nuts. I have known something is not quiet right with her for years and have tried to get her tested but she just doesnt seem to meet criteria. She is incredibly overreactive, does not understand when she is told to do something and does not understand social cues. She will look you in the eye and lie about something than tell you a few minutes later that she was the one who did it. Her brother is starting to use some of her cues to get out of trouble because he knows she gets out of it. I dont know what to do anymore. Even her ped doesnt seem to be taking me seriously. My husband thinks she will grow out of it. Apparently he had some of the symptoms when he was a child but I cant figure out how to go about getting her tested for either Aspergers or something like it. It is also affecting her school days since her teachers dont know how to deal with her behaviors when she goes ballistic over the smallest things. HELP!
