I would love to know how others who are on the spectrum wish they were supported by their parents when they were young. My daughter is 6, she struggles daily, needs control at all times (she also suffers from medical PTSD & anxiety, which we think is where the need for control comes from). She has meltdowns frequently at school, usually revolving not wanting to do what someone asks of her when she's busy doing something she likes, or someone not playing the way she tells them to play. We are exhausted from trying every way to make her feel seen and heard, and she still seems so angry all the time, at us, at the world, and I feel like nothing we do helps. What sort of support would have helped you at that age?
