Not me but I am curious on how they do the testing. I have had questions about myself but have yet to talk to a doctor about it

Hmmmm.....I wonder what would happen if every parent of a spectrum child was tested too.  It may open a whole new way of looking at things or even answer some questions regarding genetics.

As I have been reading and researching about the autistic spectrum, I think we ALL are a little autistic, lol.  I would be more neurotypical, however, there are some areas that could be classified as "austisic."  For example, I do not like large crowds, I do not like noise that fluctuates in loudness, I get claustrophobic when I feel trapped, whether it is because of a place or person, just to name a few.  Maybe the more symptoms a person has is what results in a diagnosis of autisim?  I don' know ... just a newbie in this, trying to find systems and strategies that work for me and my family!  Be blessed!
