I have two kiddos on the spectrum, both boys. One is 5 and one is 13. My eldest daughter is 20, and we have often wondered if she might also have autism. The thing that held me back from getting her evaluated was that she spoke and walked EARLY....she didn't really have developmental delays like my boys. I recently read about precocious speaking and now am wondering is it worth her getting evaluated as an adult? She has OCD and really isn't functioning as an adult at all. She can barely socialize and has severe, debilitating anxiety when leaving the house. Experiences? Thoughts?
