I am pretty sure my child has an Autism Spectrum Disorder. I would like to learn more about the diagnosis process.
Can you tell me how you went about getting your child diagnosed?
What age were they diagnosed and who diagnosed them?
What was the process and timeline like to get the diagnosis?
What types of evaluations/assessments were done?
Did you agree with the process or outcome of the diagnosis? If not, what did you do next?
Do you have any additional tips to help parents get through the diagnosis process?
