    Default Do you ever see other kids and diagnose them?

    Tell me it's not just me....

    We were at the playground and I was watching a young teen girl play by herself, act very immature, trip and fall, and watch MY dd playing with her brother with a look I've seen over and over. The look of, "I wish I could play with you but I don't know how to ask."

    I'd bet anything she's a spectrum kid.

    Am I the only one who sees SN kids out and about and just "knows"?

    I am a special ed teacher(26 years in preschool or Kindergarten special needs) so I know so many of the early signs. I have diagnosed many, many kids in my mind!! It drives my DH crazy!! The hardest thing is when your friend's or an aquaintenance's child is struggling and you know there is something going on and need to figure out a way to suggest testing. With some friends it is easier than others!

    Default All the time!

    It's an addiction - - it's like the radar has kicked in, and I can't stop it.

    I also tend to diagnose a lot of adults. It helps me to understand how to relate to some of the unfocused people who I deal with in everyday situations. So, I guess there is some advantage to my tendency to diagnose.
