My son has a speech delay and now they are testing him for autism. When he originally got the "additional testing" they said it was to see if he would be a good candidate for pre-k, but every question was subtly asking if he had autism. I didn't realize it until I researched autism when they told me they wanted to test him for it. His teacher told me off the record that she does not think he has it based on the kids she's had in the past with autism. My son was behind on some of his skills because I wasn't teaching him at home and was doing everything for him which wasn't helping at all. Now he's in school and doing great! He is counting up to 15 consistently, really picking up on things and even talking a lot more. I just dont understand them being so quick to talk about autism and not even testing for anything else. I don't want my son to be labeled for no reason.
