I would suggest seeing your PCP first.

Talk to your dr. Ask their pedi for resources

I would say a child and family counselor would be a good idea. It can be hard to have a sn child especially if they're getting basically no intervention because they're not diagnosed (idk if that's the case or not). I have a drama queen high needs dd and we've been through ups and downs in our relationship. There's been times I haven't even wanted her around me cause I just can't take her over reactions. I'm in counseling which is helping me manage myself better and how I react to her when she over reacts.

caan a family counselor see me seperately also? Like if I saw them weekly, I would bring her every other week and go alone in between?

I wouldn't judge you, parenting is hard enough without major bumps in the road. Maybe look for a support group for kids with special needs? That's where I would look first. Hang in there!

I would look for a therapist to talk to about your feelings. Having a high-needs child is stressful. It's understandable to have a hard time with it, and I'm sure it'd help you cope with the meltdowns and resentment and frustration you're dealing with.



Then I'd look for an autism support group in your area. Even if she hasn't actually been diagnosed, you'll have a supportive community and get a lot of helpful tips and ideas.



And talk to your pedi about any other resources they might have available.

Probably. Just call and ask. Or just find a counselor who is also child and family certified.
