My son started kindergarten in September and after a very quick evaluation, was diagnosed autistic. Now I'm not really sure what to do. He's been placed at a different school in a special program to cater to his disability, but I'm not getting much help from the school on what to do next. Does he see a specialist? Will I need a referral? Do I take him to a pediatrician to get the ball rolling? Is this an official diagnosis?
