Hello, How important is it to know your child is on the spectrum? I feel it is absolutely necessary, however, I have taken daughter to several doctors, psychiatrists, etc., and they say it doesn't matter. My concerns have been dismissed since she was 3 years old. She is 25 now and struggling with mental health issues as well. They diagnosed her with and intellectual disability around the age of 18, which we didn't even know she had. She is what I call a "pretender." She pretends she had no problems and no disability.
