Being an autistic parent to my amazing son Troy, I always wonder what the average age of diagnosis is for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). So I turned to twitter to find some different answers. Two questions were asked to some fellow twitter’ers that also have Autism.

Question 1: What is the average age of autism diagnosis? Is there a difference in diagnosis age for males or females?

Question 2: At what age was your child diagnosed with autism and is your child male or female? Thanks #autismparent

With only a few responses some trends were uncovered. Discovering Autism Spectrum Disorder is not an easy process, but it seems that health professionals are getting better at the process. There seems to be an age range of diagnosis between the ages of 2-7. Also there does not seem to be a difference in the ages of diagnosis according to gender.

@TROYSAMAZING I’m no professional, but I think average age is 2-3 years. Except that girls tend to have more later diagnosis ~Corina
