Question by Tajia S: is there a on line test to see if a child has autism?
I would like to take a test to see if my child has Autism. Not just a warning sign bullet page. I know it is out there somewhere.

A diagnosis shouldn’t be made through a online test, a diagnosis should be made by a medical professional.

If you’re concerned about symptoms I recommend reviewing the CDC website, for Learn the Signs, Act Early

http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/actearly/

The only issues that I have with this document is that it doesn’t clearly define that there are other conditions, with a genetic basis, that are often misdiagnosed as autism.

When looking for answers, a visit to a genetic counselor is a must even when you see no link to family inheritance, some conditions may silently lurk in a family for generations.
