nursing diagnosis


hello, i just started nursing school like 2 wks ago and we just started nursing diagnosis. Our assignment is to come up with a nursing diagnosis for autism. We got impaired verbal communication related to language delay. I need to come up with 5 interventions and present this in front of the class my worst fear. I got use one on one interactions, encourage talking through playing idk what else to come up with.

The thing about nursing diagnosis is that it is based on the nursing assessment of the patient, not the medical diagnosis. I strongly disagree with instructors who hand out a medical diagnosis and tell students to come up with nursing diagnoses. Was that truly all you were given or was it more of a case study presentation?
