Hi- what a long journey we have been on to get here!!! With various professionals and school staff telling me over the years he didn't have Aspergers, it also took a second assessment as the Autism team couldn't be 100% last year!! They have now formally diagnosed and said although some of his symptoms are subtle that doesn't mean he is mild.
What do i do now though? I have no idea when and what to tell him? Would it be too hard for him to understand and make him worry or would it help him realise why he is different.
Any advice would be good.
