a doctor would ask.
A mother has discovered that her 19 year old boy has grown suffering from undiagnosed Aspergerís syndrome. He has had mental health treatment but his condition was never diagnosed.

Centers now have to ensure patients meet certain criteria before they are treated and therefore many legitimate patients are rejected.
