my granddaughter (12) has 'suspected' high functioning asperges, but we don't know for sure, YET. She also has Severe social anxiety. She is doing school by Distance Education. This morning her mother was trying to wake her ready to prepare for school, but could not get a response from her. She tried for nearly 1/2 hr. I was also trying. Eventually, she seemed to be waking, but started throwing herself around like in an epileptic fit. I don't know if this was real or if she was just faking it. Then when she did, 'wake up', her eyes were very glassy and she didn't look to be functioning at all. Trying to speak to her was difficult, she would not respond. Her look was totally blank.
I was hoping someone could tell me, how to tell, when she is being real, or when she might be faking. Would she know 'how' to fake things. Also, if these 'episodes' are real, how do we bring her back from them?
We have only recently became aware of these issues with her and are still trying to learn how to respond to her needs.
I hope I am making some kind of sense here, because it does not make sense to me.
