My 4 yr. old daughter has been diagnosed with developmental delay, is at risk for mild to moderate autism, and is scheduled for the ADOS test next week. This is all new to me, so I've been searching the net to find what to expect. I do have some concern, however. What happens if she has very little or no participation in the testing? Around people she does not know, she has been known to have very little interest in playing even with her favorite types of toys or even acknowledging people. At the initial developmental consultation she would not even point to the pictures that the dr. asked her to, even though I knew she could. I'm sure people that do these tests are prepared for this, but what is the outcome? I'm afraid that if she shuts down like this, she may be scored incorrectly, or would they consider the test to be in-conclusive alltogether. I don't want that either-after weeks of phone calls, finally got insurance to cover the out-of-network provider because I have to travel 2 hours to find anyone that deals with these things at all. I would hate for it to have all been a waste of time.
