At 5 you are definitely not too late. Especially since you've already been treating it with speech and occupational therapy. I hope your school district is as supportive and helpful as ours has been. We wouldn't even have gotten the kids diagnosed if not for the younger's 1st grade teacher telling us that "she can't diagnose, of course, but he acts like a lot of other kids she has seen that are on the spectrum."

Good luck!
