  • It'll be mostly observation of your son...the Dr. may have a lot of questions for you about his cognitive ability, play, social and communication skills, etc. Just relax and let your son act naturally.....Depending on what you've already been through and what kind of Dr. you are seeing, they may request some tests to rule out other problems as a diagnosis of Autism is sometimes a process of elimination.
