This is my first time in me positing, so a tad nervous as to responses etc.
We have a 7 year old daughter who we have on a special guardianship order and have done since she was 1 years old. After a long spell of just getting used to her ways/tantrums etc, after watching the programme last year that was aired on ITV, I decided to contact our educational psychologist to refer us back to the paediatrician. We had an appointment last august and a follow up in February with a different Consultant, who straight away has diagnosed her with FAS. I would say that she is not as bad as others that I have read about, but when the littlest thing sets her off, this can be the most horrendous 1hr/2hrs ever. What's even worse is that I react to her, so the pair of us and shouting and screaming together. When she is in this moment she can be the most vile person ever but then something will happen and she reverts back to the most loving girl I know and a few hours later will always apologise. We are trialling her on medication at the moment which is helping in school but doesn't really seem to have that much of an effect at home and have even stopped giving her this on the weekends. Does anyone else have the same experiences?
