Re: Autism diagnosis?

Our daughter was diagnosed at 6 by a developmental neuropsychologist. I'd start with your pediatrician, and look around for autism services in your area--they can refer you to people who specialize in diagnosis. Our trouble was that the full assessment was $2500, and they didn't take insurance; our insurance reimbursed us afterwards, but we had to have the money up front. So check with your insurance, too, to see what they'll cover.

Re: Autism diagnosis?

Start with your paediatrician. Then try and have your DS seen by a child psychiatrist too. That is the path we went and 7 is not too old. Some higher functioning kids donít get diagnosed until they are teens. I really noticed how different my son was when his baby sister started doing things that he didnít do. Often it is comparing your child to others that makes things the most obvious.
