I am a middle aged woman living in the UK, and was diagnosed with dyspraxia 5 years ago. I wonder if I also have AS but I know it is difficult to get a diagnosis as an adult under the NHS, especially if considered to be 'high functioning.' I work with a student in a university who has both AS and dyspraxia and I see so many patterns of behaviour which apply to us both. I often upset people without meaning to, by saying or doing things which they tell me are inappropriate. This makes it hard for me to make lasting friendships as I don't always seem to understand social situations. Do I approach my GP who was very supportive in referring me for dyspraxia tests? Does anyone know of a person with AS who was diagnosed as an adult? If so I would really appreciate any advice. My feeling is that I would really like to know whether I am on the autistic spectrum or not.
