My daughter is 15 and can't make friends at school. She's very bright and is top of her class in most subjects. I suspect she may have a mild form of Asperger's syndrome. Her brother has a diagnosis of Asperger's and same thing: very bright kid. She's very lonely and cries a lot because she doesn't manage to 'chat' to her classmates. She's quite obsessive and always worries. She's always alone at lunch time and never get invited to parties. She got bullied in the past and the school is utterly hopeless. We don't have a GP we can really talk to, who would listen to us. I tried to find a private psychologist but they all refused because of her age. There was just one who could but quite bluntly told me off because we could make appointments just evenings and WE. We've tried all the silly advices you can find on the internet (ie. walk your dog and do some exercise). Sometimes I feel like I want to go on the roof tops and start shouting so that we get some help. What should I do? My heart bleeds for her. Any advice or useful names/addresses?
