I'm sorry that your parents get angry at you for mentioning it. Can I ask what sort of things make you think your sister has autism or ADHD?

An assessment for autism is one made by experienced professionals.

Do you have a background in this type of work?

Are you approaching the subject with caution or does it just look like you're being rude?

its hard to explain but like she screams and cries when she doesnt get her way, even in public. she still cant read and write properly. she has no friends since she finds it extremely hard to make friends (shes 7). she gets extremely shy and doesnt say anything when someone talks to her. she has anger issues. she never focuses on anything and is so careless. and many more things. even my cousins were shocked at her behaviour when they stay at our house for nearly a month and thought she had adhd

My sister has ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) and some of the things you have said sound similar, such as the struggling to make friends and anger issues. I think you need to talk to someone outside of your household; maybe a doctor, teacher or social worker. It's really important that she gets help as you obviously are finding it an issue and you said your parents are getting angry at you for suggesting that something might be wrong. You could try one of the child services. For example, Childline.

I don't know if this is any help, but I hope you take someone's advice on this. Good luck!!

Hello! These can all be signs of autism/ add, but realistically she’d need to be assessed by a psychiatrist. These can be signs of general behavioural problems also, and reading and writing issues often also stem from dyslexia or dyspraxia. If her problems persist and your parents won’t listen to you, it is very likely her school will pick up on it.

The Autism Helpline at the National Autistic Association is open again today, from 10 till 3.

The number is 0808 800 4104.

You should give them a call.

ADHD is a fraud. Its just a creation of big pharma in order to manufacture more drugs.

Its to recent a disorder to have any credibility. These disorders require hundreds of years rather than 50 to become established as in conventional Autism. Its all politically driven psychology created in order to establish a victim cult. Most western kids just need to go back to traditional education and parenting styles rather than medication and all the other *******s.
