hi my 5 year old daughter has gdd - i have been concerned for a while that she may be at the lower end of asd but the doctors wont even listen wen i mention it because she looks ppl in the eye. she is actually over friendly and doesnt take in anything i say bout strangers - a few weeks ago she walked up to a strange man and started to kiss him - it scared the hell out of me. she has real problems having her hair brushed, baths and especially having her hair washed. she has speach delay and cognitive and walks with a wide gait. recently her behaviour has been getting out of control to the point of having to put her in a quiet space to calm down for an hour before i can get any sense out of her at all. wen she throws her temper she hurts herself and others and can be quiet dangerous. is there anyone else with similar difficulties? where do i go from here?
