That's what the neuropsych told me today when we finally got to meet to discuss results of recent evaluations for one of my children, including the ADOS as he has some definite autism like characteristics. The guy remarked that yes he saw the autism characteristics everyone has been telling me to get him evaluated for but that there weren't enough/enough severity to fit an autism profile.
IQ bumping the 99th percentile and executive function scores around the 10th. Ayup, that's my kid.
His official diagnoses remain ADHD and anxiety.
The quirky label I applied to him myself many years ago, though I don't mind having it confirmed
We talked about a few ideas to work on executive function and social skills. The Neuropsych dude said he sees quite a few kids like this and that normal school settings generally do not work well for them because of their executive function demands. Yeah, I knew that. At least he isn't telling me I'm ruining the child by homeschooling him.
