Hey, Hope you can help. I have not received a diagnosis yet. The last doctor I went to said my son cannot be autistic because when the doctor looked in the at the door and said look at that my son looked, so he cannot be austisic (something about theory of mind). He said he could not have aspergers because he has had speech delay and with aspergers he would not have a delay in speech. Then as I was leaving the doctor told me to have him re tested in a year because just because he does not believe he is on the spectrum now does not mean that in a year he will not be on it. Then he told me to join support groups and treat him as if he is Mildly Mentally Retarded and Autistic. So I have to treat him as being autistic without the diagnosis of autism. Has anyone heard of this before?
