I am brand new to this community. My 17 year old daughter was not diagnosed until she was 15 after being treated for years for anxiety, ADHD, and attachment disorder (this was a REALLY wrong diagnosis). She/we are struggling. It is really hard to sort out how much of her behavior is driven/impacted by her autism, what is manipulative or what is simple disobedience/disrespect. She started using marijuana (not legal in our state) which also impacts mood and motivation. I am ready for ANY and ALL suggestions! Most days I feel like a horrible failure of a parent.
