Of autistic females, how did you go about diagnosis?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Still seeking formal screening. 🤦🏻♀️
A woman at a Baptism picked me out from the crowd and told Mom I could have Autism when in 4th Grade.
I have a doctor in WA if you want her info!
They pretty much never diagnose women at this point. it's just sad.
My mom always suspected, but I was officially diagnosed when my 5th grade teacher kept on calling home over and over again, until she finally told my mom to bring me to a psychologist. My mom didn't bring me to get diagnosed earlier because she wanted me to live a normal life, and didn't want my mental illness to be used as an excuse for things.
