finding competent doctors to give adult diagnosis in the USA is very difficult indeed. A neuro psychologist or a psychologist with an autism specialty and previous experience is ideal, but very difficult to find. there is no medical billing code for "autism diagnosis" but often insurance w...

Smaller groups always work better for me... 5 other individuals seem to be the top number I can interact with in activities or meetings. No good at role playing team bu...
