Tomorrow, DS has his appointment to get his diagnosis at the autism clinic. I purposely didn't fill out his paperwork (an assessment and an intake packet) until tonight because I'm still kind of in denial and thought that maybe by now some of the red flags would have disappeared. Now I'm worried that I'm going to somehow mess up this appointment by unintentionally downplaying some of his behaviors. DH will be there too, but right now he's not sure how he feels about everything (the other day he talked about pulling DS from therapy because he's not seeing immediate results and thinks he "just needs time to be a kid").
So my question is, how much emphasis is put on the parents answering questions? During his EI, OT, and ST evals, it seemed like a good bit of the score came from my answers on the assessments rather than interacting with DS.
