not heard of it as a disorder - more as a range of problems that can occur with ASD - that can lead to problems with things like initiating communication/conversation. Sorry I can't be of any more help. I suppose the obvious questions are 1)how do you feel about it all? and 2)is this any help to how your DD will be supported with schooling etc?

Agree with TC- I have not heard of it as a disorder. Ds executive functioning is very impaired - I thought it was part of ADHD/ASD although technically not part of the diagnostic criteria for asd?

Dd saw a private ep yesterday and she said this is actually separate to her other difficulties and described it as profound

Bh I don't really know much about this but think it something to do with higher level abilities and carrying out tasks.
Can I ask for details of the EP, or rough location if youdon't want to give details. We have just received our school EP report and it was a bit of an eye openershock

no i don't i lost everything on my pc just over a year ago and i don't have CAT... we'll think of something!

Hi BH, Same here computer problems lost all our contacts.

I did sign up to CAT but it doesn't seem to exist anymore!

I think that if you can give a time you will be around this in the near future I will pop my email address on my profile and then delete it as soon as you have it. Is that ok with you?
