My Autism Diagnosis is tomorrow, I live in the USA. Can anyone give me a semi-detailed picture of what I should expect? (I'm calling it a Diagnosis because Assessment aligns it with those terrifying tests and says there's a wrong or right way to do it. So Diagnosis lessens the anxiety a bit.)

      I'm also from the us, I had to meet with this person and he asked me a lot of questions about my life, I had to tell a story about a picture book with no words and tell another story about an assortment of random objects, he asked my mom questions about my early childhood and had us both fill out questionnaires, he got me to infodump about horseshoe crabs and was watching me closely, how I moved and spoke and where I was looking. I'm convinced everything was a part of the test, like him asking which chair I wanted to sit in.

      I had mine a few years ago, but it may be different because it was a general therapy evaluation to see where my brain was. I remember answering alot of questions, pattern recognition, memory tests, scenario responses, and an adhd test on the computer that gave me anxiety because I thought I was gonna mess up. Overall it was a really interesting and beneficial experience (other than that adhd test)

      hii! i live in the UK but i don’t know if they asses any different over here, for me they wanted me to do little activities like drawing and story telling. They ask a lot of questions that you have to answer in detail from experience. I hope it goes good for you:)
