Interviews with parents, teachers, third party reports are not reliable sourses to make a medical diagnosis, hello. Yes, you do need a battery of experts to be able to determine just what that child has. Anyone who thinks otherwise or diagnosed as such is why the autism rates are so inaccurate.
opinion is not fact of proof, so walla another stool sample

That's right, so any who had a diagnosis in that state based only on parents, teachers and third party reports is only then opinions, and therefore is a stool sample. Thanks for agreeing!

its all bs! most kids these day have spoiledbrat syndrome not autism or what ever 3 letters drs these days come up with. went to school from k-12 i didnt know 1 other kid who had any of these new made up conditions. didnt know one kid on any meds but back then you also had more households with 2 parents living together and parents did things with their kids they just didnt put them in front of the tv or put some electronic device in their hands so the parents dont have to spend any time with the kids. kids these days are allergic to everything known to man. peanuts,grass,dust,seafood,mil k,bread and the list goes on. again i didnt know one person who had these new allergies that everyone has, and parents love these things they love to get around and try to out do one another with what kind of condition their kids have its pathetic.
