just to add, the closest thing we have as far as a "gold standard" assessment now is the ADOS (autism diagnostic observation schedule) and the ADI (autism diagnostic interview). they can be administered and used diagnostically by either a doctoral level clinical psychologist or medical dr with sepcialized training. that being said, it sounds like your little one has been coping with a lot of underlying issues which would naturally interfere with social development to some extent. it's frustrating to me that professionals begin to throw around such hefty terms w/o explaination or solid basis for their thought process!
