I would ask your PCP to refer you to someone, I would imagine, a psychiatrist, since they usually do the diaagnosing of ASDs. It is harder to get to a diagnosis as an adult, but there are people out there with experience with adults with autism.

I have an ASD, but my experience probably wouldn’t be helpful for someone seeking an autism diagnosis as an adult. I got my diagnosis by the time I was 4 years old, which is unusual because it’s quite mild even by Asperger’s standards. But in my situation, the main reason it got detected before I was in school was the fact that one of my brothers has a more moderate form.<br /><br />Do you have a child or children, OP? The only reason I ask is that in many of the cases I have heard of adults getting autism diagnoses, it is often after their child gets an ASD diagnosis.

Teatime:  Sorry. Primary Care Provider. If you don’t have on, I would start with getting one. They’re important for your overall health.

Teatime:  No, a primary care physican is your normal doctor who does your checkups, etc.
