Q. what are the general symptoms to look for autism in a child below 3 years?

what are the general symptoms to look for autism in a child below 3 years, which makes it prominent for autism diagnosis?
AIf the child develops at his own pace then its good. Check if the child does not utter a word, have no expression by hand or face within the age of one. If the child does not say a word and not even repeats what other say by the age of 2 years. Then I think it’s a check point for further diagnosis for autism.

Q. What is the process a general physician would use to diagnose adult ADHD?

I'm have an appointment with my primary care physician to be screened for adult ADHD. Does anyone know what he will do in order to test and diagnose me?
A1Actually I was just diagnosed with ADHD. I'm 57. My doctor sent me to a phyciatrist, and he asked me several questions. Gave me a scrip and want to see me back in a month. I answered 26 questions, and he rated on my answers.
A2He may ask you questions or refer you to a psychologist. I never heard of care physicians diagnosing ADHD but I know that they can.

Psychologists use checklists and observation to make a diagnosis. It's not that complicated or hard.

A3I went to a specialty clinic with a psychiatrist who is trained in mental health and knows what to look for and what to rule out. For mine they did a really long self-report scale to make sure that I didn't have any other mental health things going on like depression or an anxiety disorder. I took a computer test that gauged several things (impulsivity, attention and I don't remember the rest). They should have you submit questionnaires to family and/or friends because they often have information about you that you don't know yourself. For example, you may not realize tat you are tuning out in conversations because it's normal for you, but others might recognize it!
Good luck!

A1one more thing: fat is not equal to fat. you have saturated and unsaturated fats, essential fatty acids, multiple unsaturated fats, "transfatty" acids from plants or animals. if you use margarine at home, you should once visit a producer of such product and watch each step of manufactoring. there is a phase where margarine looks like a grey mass. because nobody would buy such awful looking product, they have to add butter to make it look more handsome. Get the book "The Cholesterol Myth" from Dr. Uffe Ravsnkov distributed by Sally Fallon. Check out all this and make your decisions. perhaps you know the Hoppi indians which said: One day white man will have a plenty of food in his plate but will die of hunger." or similar. Watch for example also the films Powanisqatsi or Koyanisqatsi. butter reduces cholesterol in our body, margarine makes the contrary. if you don't believe me, let it measure by a specialist. margarine is also in the meantime known to increase th
A2then don't use anymore your microwave-oven for anything and throw this device away. this could be the main reason, that your child has obesity. try it out! if you give your child milk, then find biological raw milk. why? do you know what happens if you feed a calf during 21 days with pasteurised milk? the calf dies!!! so think about the milk you give your child, if you do so. perhaps you will help your child a lot with a good natural tea - for example Lapacho-tea. If your child loves sweet things, give him Stevia-tea which can very good be used as substitution for sugar. do you use multivitamins or other additives? are they artificial? then stop it and find natural vitamins, more expensive but without any secondary effects. perhaps you have a garden, so start your own garden of vegetables and fruits. find other families who had already success. there are also persons around who can find out what your child should not eat and what would be healthy. i don't know their profession title.
A3there are multiple causes: beverages with artificial sweeteners, fast food, genetic modified food, artificial additives, artificial vitamins, industrial food in general when it is not biological. then it depends how much you diversify the meals, what do you give for breakfast, how much vegetables, fruits, cereals, meat, avoid porc, if you cook foreign vegetables, which ones in which season - use the vegetables of the seasons, read about macrobiotical food preparation for example, there is no general solution for you child. find a specialist who had success. if your child can walk every day with a dog during an hour and more it helps too, to stay as long as possible at the fresh air, to do some physical exercice, don't abuse whatever you do with your child, it must make fun, your child should give your feedback about your new meals, don't use white, raffined sugar but biological, unraffined, brown sugar, give to your child as supplement Mannatech additives, biological rice helps a lot
