My 5th grader has been having difficulties at school over the past few months and after countless visits with psychologists, counselors, school staff, etc she was finally diagnosed with autism by a child psychiatrist. I'm surprised it took as long as it did but now with the label some odd behaviors she has exhibited since birth make sense. She is high-functioning & intelligent, but cant deal with certain things out of order or surprises in her schedule. She has difficulty with peers because she thinks they should act in a particular way and she has no flexibility when she thinks something should be done in a particular way and she has little empathy. She cant handle the sensory chaos of the classroom, lunch room, recess, etc. Switching tasks is difficult. I know some people here are or have family who are high-functioning on the spectrum such as Aspergers or similar. Any advice on how my wife & I can best help her deal with her situation?
