When my child was younger, I was told that she was developing normally and that she was fine. As she got older her behaviour became more bizarre, and we were told she had ADHD. A couple of years later she finally had a diagnosis of ASD. I didn't suspect ASD until she was 8 years old. She was my first child, I accepted her for who she is, and that was that. But as she got older it became more apparent, and by the time she was diagnosed we were desperate for help.
