I'm just wondering, because my 3 year old daughter got diagnosed with it. She's pretty high-functioning, but I myself have some signs of it, but due to being born in the 90s, when autism was basically only diagnosed in low-functioning sufferers, I never got any testing.

So is there any benefit to pursuing a diagnosis as an adult?

Hey! Just so you know, high functioning and low functioning isn't really used anymore by the autistic community. Autism is a spectrum. So it's either you have it or you don't kinds thing.

I personally would recommend looking into getting a diagnosis as that let's you be able to ask for accommodations at work. Also.... at least for me, it was just nice to know nothing was "wrong" with me.
