This came up on another board so I thought I'd ask here. Did any of your kids' teachers make the recommendation to have your kids tested or did you make it happen without teacher input? My son's teachers and therapists have never mentioned autism, but they all seemed relieved when I told them that we are in the process of getting him evaluated. When I talked to some teacher friends and my husband, who is also a teacher, they said that they are not allowed/supposed to make recommendations to get evals done because they are not trained to make that call ( not doctors) and then the school district would have to provide additional services. By the time they get to junior high, all the teachers know which kids need a diagnosis/services, but they can't really say anything. What's been your experience?
