New criteria for ASD diagnosis
I know there have been lots of rumors, some true and some untrue, going around about the new way they will diagnosis Autism and what they will and won't call it.
Brady had a neuro-developmental checkup last week, and his doctor (the one that diagnosed him with Autism at 18 months old) told me she went to a conference at the local children's hospital the week before about all the new requirements for diagnosing Autism. She told me with the new changes, it is almost impossible to diagnose a child with Autism under the age of 2. The new criteria, questions, characteristics are just not realistic for a child that young. Some of the things the children would have to do or exhibit are things a 2 year old just can't quite do yet.
Have any of you heard this? What have you heard about the new stuff with diagnosing Autism?
