We often think of children getting an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis however our education and care systems were not always so responsive.  Many adults get diagnosed in their 20s and beyond.

Having a diagnosis can be an epiphany for some adults:  Finally having a tangible explanation that they and their loved ones can both relate to.  What a relief!

But what of regret and anger for all the times they felt different and ashamed of it. For all the times they could have been supported rather than misunderstood.  What would life have been like?
