Since you already have a neurologist, ask for an appointment for an autism screening or if your neurologist doesn't do that kind of thing, get a referral for one who does. Depending on your child that neurologist may ask for you to go get other tests done (ADOS, intelligence testing, a speech evaluation, etc.) with other professionals but a pediatric neurologist or pediatric psychologist/developmental pediatrician are the ones who can give you a diagnosis.
Thanks. He has an appt with chop to be tested for autism, odd etc i just didnt know it sounds like he has autism. His speech is great. His neuro and pediatrician have both told me to have him evaluated. I didnt know if all those symptoms i listed are i guess on the spectrum of autism. I just want to be able to help him. He hits himself a lot too and i don't know what to do
