In brief: Depends on location
Assuming you're an adult, you may find it hard even in large urban areas to find an expert.
Getting someone to give you that label is not nearly as important as finding someone who can clarify your concerns and help figure out how to ease the problems you're having. There is no cure for asd. Find a psychologist or psychiatrist with a good reputation and start there.
