Mary asks…

is it possible to be diagnose with autism at the age of 18 ?

my boyfriend is 18 and is saying to me he has autism … is he lying ?
Hes told me that he went to the doctors, (may i mention hes been known to lie before) he went ot the doctors and on that day he done a test and got told there and then ?

admin answers:

Some of us aren’t diagnosed until later because parents aren’t able to catch it or figure out what is wrong. So yes. Actually it’s far easier to diagnose an adult because they don’t have to rely on symptoms so much and can actual get verbal feedback during tests.
