Lab testing can be a critical piece to understanding and treating the underlying biomedical issues related to autism. As a parent, you have many things to consider when evaluating lab testing, including cost, method of testing (whether it is blood, urine, hair, or saliva), usefulness, and the possible benefits of it. Understanding these aspects of testing is important for parents to make informed decisions about whether to test and what to test. Terri will walk you through some of the major things that contribute to a parent's use and understanding of diagnostic testing, including how to help educate care providers on your team about testing.
