  • It has to be diagnosed by a doctor. They can do testing to determine that...

  • Honestly the dr wont diagnose at such a young age. They don't like to diagnose until they are school aged. Even then its hard to get a diagnosis. Does your child receive special services from a regional center? like OT or Speech therapy? Maybe she just has behavioral issues. Or something else is going on. Autism is a very broad spectrum you should read more about it

  • Maybe testing is the wrong word, I mean like an evaluation, they observe him etc..

  • Be ready. You will need to see a child psychologist, a neurologist, OT, Speech therapist etc. They make you go through hoops to see if they have anything. What else is it that makes you think she has autism?
