My son Leland is 21/2 & after months of reading I believe he is atleast mildly autistic. He does this rapid blinking like he's got something in his eye for no reason at all but has passed all his vision tests. He goes to speech therapy 3 days a week for the past 6 months after having tubes placed in his ears. It has made little to no improvement. He can say "mama" & "dada". Other words he can get out the 1st sound & that's it. I'm concerned that his pediatrician is not even willing to have him tested for autism.
Should I get a 2nd opinion from a different doctor? I don't want to put my son through a trial of unnecessary tests :(
