Autism Symptoms and Diagnosis

Feel free to reach out to our office for an assessment related to Autism Spectrum Disorder. As outlined in the DSM-5, the symptoms typically involve difficulties in social interaction, communication, sensory processing, and exhibiting restrictive or repetitive behaviors. Diagnosis of autism currently relies on observing behavioral patterns rather than on biological markers like blood tests or brain scans. As highlighted by the CDC, early indicators include behaviors such as avoiding eye contact, showing limited interest in others, delayed speech development, and discomfort with minor changes in routine. Diagnosing autism in adults may pose challenges due to potential milder presentations, yet receiving an official diagnosis can still be a significant and empowering step for individuals.
