Educational vs Medical Diagnosis

Even though a child may have received an autism diagnosis in a school setting, this educational diagnosis does not qualify for the medical diagnosis. A medical diagnosis does also not take the place as an educational diagnosis. Therefore, depending on the services the parent/ guardian is seeking for their child, an additional diagnosis may be required.
