Autism Case Training (Continuing Education)
Case Study A:
Early warning signs alert providers to the risk of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Recognizing these warning signs is necessary in order to know when to screen or further evaluate children for ASD and how to appropriately counsel families.
Case Study B:
Early identification of ASD and referral for specialized treatment greatly improves long-term outcomes for children with ASD. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends ongoing developmental surveillance at every visit, developmental screening at 9, 18, and 24 or 30 months, and autism-specific screening at 18 and 24 months.
