Any ideas on how to bring up Auspergers syndrome with my childs pediatrician?

I would maybe start by talking about a few the symptoms in general that are making you questions whether or not he/she may have it...such child has been doing this lately...and my child has seems to be ________ etc. Then casually bring up Asperger's Syndrome and how you've begun to wonder if that could be the cause for these symptoms. In my experience, if you go in and say...I think my child has Asperger's Syndrome (or in one of my experiences, colic), many doctors gets defensive right away thinking you think you know more than them and will find a different solution to your concern rather than even considering your solution. Just my exeprience, I don't know you're doc, but it can be easier to go into it gently rather than just come out with your assumption. Good luck!!!
