In brief: Teachers screen

kids in PK - elementary school with the Brigance System to obtain age-equivalents in specific abilities for yearly revision of Individual Educational Plans.
Child Psychologists & Neuropsychologists use standardized tests of IQ & adaptive skills at age 5 & older to diagnose Intellectual Disability, comorbid in 35-65% of kids with Autistic Spectrum Disorder & other tools to define degree of ASD.
