Merthyr mum called ‘paranoid’ for years before daughter was diagnosed with autism – ITV News

A mum-of-two from Merthyr said she was called “paranoid” for years before her seven-year-old daughter was diagnosed with autism.

Natasha Evans said her daughter Miley was diagnosed with ADHD at four-years-old following disruptive behaviour at school. But Natasha said she disagreed with the diagnosis.

She wasn’t doing a lot of things. She didn’t play and she wasn’t interested in playing with children.

They put her on medication which I didn’t like. They made her really quiet and the school thought that was a good thing as it saw her behaviour improve but it was making her ill. She was having headaches and she was being sick.

– NATASHA EVANS

Natasha had to research Miley’s behaviour herself to try to understand it.
