Autism Diagnosis

Autism is usually diagnosed by the age of three. Early diagnosis and treatment often helps to improve the outcome for patients.

Diagnosis includes the following:

  • physical examination (may include neurological examination)
  • medical history (includes family history, birth history and records of early development)
  • medical tests (to rule out other conditions)
  • physicians use various screening tools to evaluate their development, communication and language skills and interaction with others
