I was diagnosed this year and I heard that waiting times have been pretty bad. I got really lucky. Check your local colleges/universities for diagnosis. I found a psychologist near me that charged me the least (colleges near me had full queues) even when I looked out of state. I told my psychologist that I wanted closure on whether or not I have autism. Luckily he is very up to date on autism and I got the closure that I needed. Good luck!! :)
