When do they test kids for autism?

When can a child/baby get tested for austim I am almost 100 percent my daughter is; she’s 13 months. Won’t hold eye contact , doesn’t wave or point, response to name sometimes ; and she moves her left hand as if she’s saying by with fingers up and down constantly ….

My daughter got referred at 18 months and officially diagnosed right before she turned 2.

i wished this would get pinned but do the Mchat survey. and go to your dr right away. my daughter was diagnosed at 18 months. and there was a long wait to get there. start now.

Depends on where you are. My son couldn’t get the referral until he was 2. I put him on several waiting lists in multiple states and it took 2 years for a spot to open up for his evaluation.

Go to a developmental person doctor…the earlier the better
