Since we moved to middle east last year, I was told by the nursery/daycare my 2 year old daughter attends is that they think she is autistic. I have since seen a developmental pedtrcn and seen an OT, and a Speech therapist. They all have concluded that its not autism she has but displays autistic like behavior like walking on toes, tantrums and speech delay. The school on the other had...I feel, have already labeled her and treat her like she is autistic. I cannot just change schools because there isn't many choices and the waiting lists are too long. I am stuck in Qatar with not many options. I believe my child will overcome her speech delay but I am not getting support from the school. I am in desperate need of a speech therapist and OT. I am so confused and frustrated!!!
