Hello everyone. In November we took our 4 year old to be tested for Autism. We live outside of Atlanta, so we when to the Marcus Institute of Atlanta. I imaged that when went in there they would give some kind of blood work or something along those lines. However when we got there we sat in the waiting room for about an hour (which just made all of us restless) then when we got in the back to talk to the doctor all she did was sit down and play with Caiden (my baby). This continued for about 45 minutes and then after watching him she took me in the next room and told me that she is diagnosing him with high funtioning autism. Now my question for everyone who reads this is, was this how your children were diagnosed? Or did their doctors do anything different? Also did the doctor ask you if you beleive that your child was born with autism or did they stop developing? She did not ask that. I know he has autistic tendancies, but I don't understand how she can know for a fact that he is autistic. Another thing is now that they are diagnosing ALOT more children with autism, what if we (the parents) were born now a days? How many of us would be diagnosed?? I am just curious what everyone thinks.
