You don’t need a diagnosis to come see us, but for those who would like to know if their child may be autistic, we suggest you start with a screening tool called the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, or M-CHAT. It’s a 20-point questionnaire, is easy to fill out and score online, and will give you an idea if you need to have further testing done. Just click here to get started.
Do you have a daughter that you think might be on the spectrum, but the pediatrician is reluctant to send off for testing? Gender bias in screening for and diagnosing autism is all the talk right now. See my article on PsychCentral here to start the discussion.
