i have a fourteen yr old daughter who has a long history of learning disiabilties. she also had a speech delay which i know the majority of asperger's kids dont. however, she has significant social problems, has one friend, does alot of finger tapping when she reads (has to tap all over the page she is reading but only if it is a magazine or book with pictures) She also started having seizures two years ago that are now be controlled with depakote(partial complex seizure originating the left temporal lobe) she has also been diag with adhd, possible bipolor, and possible capd( i am in the process of having an eval and full neuro testing done)
now hears my question she has been seen by numerous doctors including a dev ped could she have been misdiagnosed all these years? aspergers has never been mentioned by anyone but she sure fits the profile especially the social component. anyone out there with an experience like this or any feedback would be appreciated.
