I have a daughter with Aspergers. She doesn’t know that she has it and if we try to speak to her about it she will not accept it. I read your article Don’t Miss Diagnosing Aspergers in Young Girls and my daughter also can’t seem to wash her hair properly, nor comb it . . . ever.
She is 14 and doesn’t have friends. She says that she does, but they are all online friends who have never met her in person. It is hard to find help for her since she thinks that there is absolutely nothing wrong.
She is not a good student, the only class she does well in is Language Arts. She is disorganized and will just lie on her back with her computer on her lap all day long if I don’t force her to do something else. She can’t manage time.
What I am trying so desperately to figure out is what kind of help works? What type of therapist works? Especially for someone who thinks that they don’t need any help? We live in Raleigh, NC. I don’t know where to go or what to do.
