If you’ve ever wondered whether or not you’re autistic, you don’t need to rush straight to getting an official diagnosis (which would be costly, time consuming, and maybe not even worth it as an adult).

So what should you do instead?

There are several tests that you can take online (that are statistically significant) that will give you a ton of information about yourself and then you can decide where you want to go from there.

I’ll be sharing what those tests are, what it’s like taking them, and what you can expect from the results.

Note that no single test is going to be conclusive, so I recommend taking all of them because more information is always better :)

(And if you want to watch instead of read, I posted a YouTube video on this topic! Check it out here.)
