Re: Could my daughter have aspergers?

She doesn't sound similar to my son who has aspergers but it is a spectrum disorder so you see a great variety of symptoms. If in your gut you feel that there is something "wrong" with her you need to advocate for her. There is no cure for asperger's. Just alot of therapy and social skills training to help them function more "normally". Middle school years are tough from what I hear from professionals. Once kids hit high school things seem to become easier (again from what I'm told since my son is only 10 I don't really know firsthand yet).
