I have been advised to gather a few together to support my appeal for refusal to assess.

There was a good article in the Times Magazine a couple of years ago - I still have it scanned if you want me to email it to you.

Tony Attwood's Complete Guide to Aspergers talks about how it presents very differently in girls. It was reading that which finally made my mind up to seek a diagnosis for DD, and the lovely paediatrician referred to it as 'our bible'.

Sorry just seen the last few posts smile

streaky I will pm you tomorrow with my email address, thankyou.

Holey I will order Aspergirls, it may talk to me too smile

Crabby I have the TA book and also referred to it as my bible while I was trying to get Dd3 dx'ed. I know it said some interesting stuff about girls I will dig it out and have a look.

Thanks all, if there are anymore you think of please let me know smile
