More about me...
So we were referred for families counselling and a clinical psychologist actually sat in on that meeting and then asked us to go back and just see her and she identified from that initial meeting that potentially Nicole could have Asperger's syndrome and it took another about three months of meetings, not weekly or anything you know once every six weeks, filling out forms, answering questionnaires me going on my own. Nicole being spoken to on her own before they then actually gave me an initial diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome.
