I am wondering if I should be worried...I had a meeting at my 4 yrs old school the other day...and apparently my daughter is not like other's her age. She if very smart, although extremely hyper. She is very affectionate. She has some issues like with her bowels, up until here recently has not had normal bowel movements in like a year...laxative didn't help...she would still go a week without using the bathroom..Her pediatrician said that once potty trained would work itself out but no didn't work...I recently changed pediatricians and he suggested to giver her miralax and put her on the toilet three times a day for at least 1- mins at a time...it seems to be helping but not completely.
Anyway the school called me the other day and said that we need to have a student assessment team meeting about her and I am a little worried...I do have a nephew with asperger's but have never really been around him bc He lives 6 hours away.
So I am wondering what are the signs of autism/asperger's and should I be worried? Thanks for any input!
