My wife and I had a meeting with an early intervention specialist and a child psychologist last Thursday. The child psychologist said that she was very confident that our son falls under the autism spectrum on the high-functioning end. She also said that he already has an IFSP, so an actual diagnosis really isn't necessary because the school district will see he has special needs and address those needs. She didn't really discourage us getting an actual diagnosis because most parents do so they know what they are actually facing. Is this true? Is an actual diagnosis necessary? Please help! My mind is kind of in a blur right now and I am confused as to what I should do.
