I have a daughter at the age of 15 she has ADHD and just recently just been diagnosed with having a low mentality level compared to other peers her age she is well below average her vocal comp is only scoring 1 and it is meant to be 50 there are other things I have noticed about her she does not have friends she gets uptight in a social atmosphere at school home or outside she can hold herself back from melt down until she gets to the comfort of her own home then the melt down starts, she has no friends she cant keep friends, she is excluded from outings with friends she is treated differently, I find it difficult to get her to bathe herself i need to keep nipping at her to take a shower she also needs things to be in a specific order or if its pens or loom bands they have to be in the bags that have them in ( e.g purple bands in the bag with purple and red with red if there is a bag with different coloured bands in she goes nuts and sorts them all out all 60 bags of them im sure this isn't right. I have been told by her consultant that it's a teenager thing but i'm not so sure. She also has vocal ticks and has problems with aggression if something in her life has changed can anyone tell me if this is even mild signs of autism because her consultant wont test her. Any information will be good
