Looking for some hope for my daughters future education and career options.
I have a 17 year old daughter, who was assessed for ASD 2 years ago but was not given a diagnosis despite a previous initial assessment by Actions for Aspergers in school, that implied she demonstrated a combination of ASD traits that became heighten when she became anxious and depressed. She did get a diagnosis of GAD and now takes some medications to help with this. She was unable to take her GCSE's and left school before her exams, she went to Moulton College and passed her level 1 Animal welfare course but it was a daily struggle. She is a bright articulate, creative and emapthetic teenager who loves animals and communicating online with a creative community that role play and write stories, draw characters and she also loves Dungeons and Dragons. She has just started the level 2 course at Moulton but has already began to find it difficult and overwhelming. I have signed up here to ask for some advice and look for some hope for her future education and career options.
