If you can get it, order the DAN! protocol ($25.00) and it will have many tests suggested. Also go see a DAN! doctor to help guide you (and order the tests), if you don't have a DAN! dr in your area, ask around & find an orthomolecular medicine/nutrition type professional. I would suggest considering:
Urine Organic Acid - to find bacterial & yeast byproducts & see if there is intestinal imbalance
Comprehensive Food Allergy test - tests for wheat, dairy and 90 other foods which may be causing diarrhea & cerebral allergies = autistic behaviours
Heavy Metal Analysis (blood or hair? I'm not sure) - and I don't know where to get it done, but I know that kids will have developmental delays if they have a toxic load of heavy metals. The first two can be done at:
The Great Plains Laboratory Inc.
9335 W. 75th Street
Overland Park, KS 66204
There is a reason your child is developmentally delayed; you are smart to try to find out now.
