Autism Treatment and Intervention

Autism Spectrum Disorders are now recognized as neurobiologically based conditions. Individuals with ASD/PDD require ongoing medical monitoring and care, as would any person with a chronic medical condition. All treatments – medical and non-medical – should be reviewed at every healthcare visit. The frequency of this monitoring should be individualized to the child’s specific needs. This care should occur under the supervision of a medical professional, such as a childdiversity Autism Spectrum Disorders psychiatrist, general or developmental pediatrician or pediatric neurologist, with expertise in working with children with ASD/PDD. It includes monitoring a child’s progress, treating associated medical conditions, assisting the family in investigating and accessing appropriate medical and other interventions, and keeping the family informed about new medical tests and interventions. Adequate time should be allotted to address these issues.203
