    Exclamation something's not right

    I'm concerned about my 3 year old daughter.

    - she cleans all day long!
    - she will not listen, despite discipline or bribes.
    - she says " i can't" when she absolutely can
    - always crazy hyper....
    - can't count, but knows how many are there??
    - can't sing ABC's not even just ABC
    - doesn't interact with neibor kids outside, she will pick a flower and sit in grass alone staring at the flower!

    - she's always looking into space, I call her name she ignores me..

    - wont look at me in the eye ever!

    - she wont potty train..... despite discipline, bribes, new pretty underwear...


    - I think she has ADHD but I'm thinking its a bit more complex than that.
    - there's way more to write, and I have no time to do so!

    As the mother of three boys on the Autism spectrum (two have ADHD as well). I would highly recommend a developmental assessment.

    Good luck

    Hi:

    I'm sorry you are having problems with your daughter. I know this is hard, but try to just observe her, that way when you go to a doctor you can answer their questions. It sounds like Autism, but needs to be diagnosed by a professional. Have you taken her to her pediatrician? They have an Autism screening form that you can fill out, then if it appears to be that, they can make a referral to a specialist. In the meantime, try to find an Autism support group in your area, the parents might be able to give you a lot of insights into how she might be feeling, or how to deal with her. If she's not Autistic, great! But you still would have the support of other people to help you to deal with her issues. These parents are the ones who have been through it all and can maybe give you some ideas.
    As far as potty training, maybe put that on the back burner till you figure out what is going on, that's not something you can control.

    Best wishes with your little one,
    K.

    Hi:

    Wow what a shame, should be such a fun time for you and her right now. I agree with the other posters, she does appear to have some of the traits found on the Autistic spectrum and a development assessment would work wonders. Can I ask you some questions: has the family experienced some kind of dramatic event lately like a death in the family, a stressful move, or has she been terrible sick?? If answer is no to all these questions, then please call and make appointment with occupational therapist in the community, so she can be tested.

    Sounds like it could be something like aspergers or something on the autism spectrum disorder. Definitely try to intervene early. There are programs that can be made available to her to give her therapy to try to keep her on grade level, but they have to start early. Many kids do very well with the right interventions, and it could definitely make your life easier.
