Why Is This Case Important?
For children with ASDs, educational interventions are the mainstay of treatment.
Such interventions may include behavioral therapies, speech-language therapy, and occupational therapy. These therapies target the core symptoms of ASDs and aim to improve a child’s functioning across environments.
Depending on age, most children with an ASD access these therapies through early intervention programs or local school districts. These agencies serve as important resources for children with ASDs.
