Is It Usually Sufficient To Accept A School System's Evaluation Of Whether Or Not My Child Has Autism?

Question: Is it usually sufficient to accept a school system's evaluation of whether or not my child has autism?

Answer: A school system's evaluation should be assessed on the quality of the assessors. That means, do the people who did the evaluation have enough expertise in autism in order to reach a valid conclusion? Therefore again, parents should be an informed consumer, do reading about autism, and ask themselves, 'does this fit?' If not, get a second opinion.
