Here are a few that I've come across. I've noticed that a lot of sites have the same information, but I hope they can be helpful for you nonetheless.

Is it normal for doctors to try to pass off autism as a behavioral disorder and then change there mind and then send for the testing?

Yes, in cases where the child is high-functioning autism is not always an obvious diagnosis. They will rule out all other possibilities and only test for autism once everything else has been ruled out. It's pretty standard.

The best kind of help you can get is to find other experienced parents who have gone through the same thing. Is there a support group in the Soo for Asperger's Syndrome in kids?

yes there is one for parents of autistic kids, not just aspie kids. i will try to find out that info for you if you want when i see my step-sons worker on friday. and yes, some doctors won't even test for it if it isn't glaringly obvious until the child reaches a certain age.

Not that I'm advocating, but there's some good info, and dis-info in here.

That is very intresting. I have already refused a few drugs because they have not been tested on children and i have heard horror stories of kids becoming addicted and then the withdrawls from the pills are worse then the actual behavours that they are trying to curb in the first place.

be prepared for a long wait in getting a diagnosis unless you have money to get testing done quicker. We are still waiting for testing for my son.
