I took my daughter to our Gp to request an assessment for Aspergers we had always known she was different but she didn't really have any real problems until leaving high school. Our Gp did not know anything about aspergers and had to look it up he then after talking with us for a few minutes said that my daughter did not appear to have any of the difficulties! Tried to say she was depressed ( yes maybe but as a result of the difficulties she was facing) Result referral to mental health team who thankfully agreed with me and not our Gp my daughter is now in the final stages of being assessed.
