Dear worriedg

Thank you for your further post. I am sorry to hear about the continuing difficulties your family are experiencing.

Your adult daughter who is involved in care proceedings has now had a partial diagnosis of ASD. You don’t say if this was as part of an expert psychological/psychiatric assessment for court. Was the impact of this considered as part of any parenting assessment that your daughter may have had? Do encourage your daughter to discuss the implications of this fully with her solicitor who should be able to advise her on what this means in her children’s case. It is important that your daughter raises any significant issues with her solicitor now, whilst the case is still in court.

It is a good idea to help her find some support for herself as a parent with ASD. A good starting place might be the National Autistic Society who provide both telephone advice and also have a directory of services and support groups. Some of the family and friends carers who use this discussion board and may have experience of a family member with ASD may also be able to signpost you to support groups or help for your daughter.

I hope this helps.

With best wishes

Suzie
