So dd had her six month neurodevelopmental pedi checkup today. It went pretty well. She definitely shared my concerns of autism especially with the new info about her knowing her letters/starting to read. She was pretty unresponsive to her name (which I stated had gotten better, haha), wouldn't follow a point, and the doctor had a really difficult time engaging her. When she sat down to play with her, things got better. She eventually spoke to the pedi--said no when she didn't want to do something, said done when she wanted to move on, and asked for help. She made good eye contact when using words to communicate which she said was a good sign and demonstrated some joint attention as well. After the Eval when i was speaking to the doctor about her thoughts, dd started intentionally being naughty to get my attention and giggling which her dr said was not consistent with autism. She said there was enough she saw to recommend doing the ADOS to know for sure, but felt that even if she was on spectrum that the prognosis was excellent considering both the hyperlexia and how well she communicated. Overall she said she was a fascinating case but she was completely stumped by her.
That leads me to my question. How long does the ADOS take? What will be expected of her?
