Hi I was wondering if someone could give some advice. My son is 20 and I am certain he has Autism or Aspergers. He lives with me and finds people, emotions and other things very difficult. He will not go to the GP to ask for a diagnosis by himself or with someone, he would find asking for help very hard to do. I took him to the GP in 2002 when he was young but GP said to speak to his school and the headmaster referred him back to the GP but nothing was done in the end. He struggled all through school and did not go to college. He finds it hard to keep a job unless it is gardening which he enjoys because he likes to work alone. Is there any way for him to get a diagnosis without having to talk to anyone? Does anyone here have any suggestions? Thank you.
