How Is Autism Diagnosed?

Specialized doctors and psychologists perform a series of behavioral evaluations such as the Modified Checklist of Autism in Toddlers (M-CHAT) to gauge whether or not your child is at risk. Your child may also be tested at school as well. If you suspect that your child may be autistic, speak to your doctor immediately.
