In brief: Depends

Both age and behaviors may dictate what testing in necessary.
Not all kids with developmental and social problems are autistic and not all autistic spectrum disorders need hours and hours of testing to clinch the diagnosis. Assuming you're talking about a child, start with a pediatrician with expertise in behavioral disorders and follow her/his advice.
