My 13 year old daughter is being seen at a child and adolescent mental health service. The doctor has recommended an autism assessment and treatment for anxiety. She has declined the treatment for anxiety and is resistant to further appointments for autism assessment. Her behavior has become increasingly violent over many years and affects our whole family. She has not attended school for many months. I can see that she is upset by this possible diagnosis and doesn’t understand that we are trying to help her. What can we do as parents in this situation?
