Isn't he a bit young for them to be able to determine if he is on the autism spectrum or not?
I don't know if it's the latest "thing". I do believe the diagnosis is still rather infrequently made, but I also wouldn't call it a rare diagnosis, either.
At his current age, I would question that diagnosis if it's made. Granted, I believe that the earlier you intervene on it; the better it would be for him IF he is autistic, but to label him erroneously could do great harm.
