Screaming Toddler

My son is 2.5 years old. He is healthy and smart in general. He is very adorable at home and also affectionate with people that he is familiar or feel comfortable with. But the only thing is that he always screams at strangers (adults and children) in public places, such as in a department store, restaurant, library, etc. We have tried many different methods but failed to control him. It is getting to the point that we are reluctant to bring him out in order to avoid the embarrassing situation. Added to our concern is that his pediatric has suggested to send him for an evaluation due to the delay in social skill development. Now we start getting worried about the possibility of Autism. Has anyone had similar experience with their toddler? And please share if anyone has advice to deal with the situation. Thank you.
