Getting a Sensory diagnosis

So I've got a few questions. My son became affected by autism in June. He turned 2 on Halloween. He's had sensory issues since infancy. At first, he refused baby foods (still has mushy food disease, as we like to call it), and we noticed more and more issues as he started crawling, then walking. He puts EVERYTHING in his mouth, and it's possible that he has PICA. Anyway, everyone (the SLP, the O/T, the P/T, the ABA folks) acknowledge that he's got a sensory problem, but I'm wondering who would actually formally diagnose a Sensory Integration Disorder. Also, is there any benefit or downside to having an official diagnosis?
Thanks in advance for any info!!
