I’m new to this community and have been learning a lot! My 27 yr old son was diagnosed with ADHD his junior year in high school. Two yrs after he graduated adult life started presenting him with some difficult challenges. Long story short, after listening to some Q&A calls and the behaviors described by other parents I am beginning to think my son is also on the spectrum. I am wondering (1) if it would be of benefit to have him diagnosed and (2) how to get that done. I’ve called a few places near us and it is proving to be difficult. He is on Medicaid and is married and living with us. (I believe he and his wife are in defense mode but we are working hard to help them come out and I think it’s moving in the right direction.) why is it so hard to get someone diagnosed?
