Does anyone know how I can get a diagnosis or atleast meet or speak to a professional about the possibility of Adult autism with a professional
Ive been reading about autism and think I may be on the spectrum. This is because I can relate to the triad of impairments mostly around social interaction and when I think back to my childhood I was always on the outside looking in. I didnt have the skills to iniate conversation or play with others and unfortunately this went on into adolescence and beyond.
I struggle now with chit chat and often forget to do small talk and just launch into what I have in my head, instead of following the rules of good conversational ettiquette.
Can anyone tell me if there is a professional or practitioner who I could speak to about my challenges, I know that for a formal diagnosis you have to go via the middle man- your GP etc, but before getting to that point it would be great to speak directly to someone who is an expert so I can explain my story and situation.
Thanks all for reading
