Managing Autism Spectrum Disorder
Appropriate, early, intensive educational therapies greatly improve long-term outcomes for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Effective primary care management of ASD includes supporting families by providing referrals for appropriate therapies and community resources.
Children with ASD often present with challenging or maladaptive behaviors that are commonly seen in addition to the core deficits. Pediatricians are often called upon to help evaluate children for underlying medical concerns and to facilitate obtaining appropriate treatment.
Children with ASD present with issues and challenges similar to those of typically developing children, but special consideration may be needed when evaluating these issues and providing anticipatory guidance to families.
