Assessment and Treatment of Autism (2 Units)
Physicians are often the first health care professionals to encounter children that display symptoms associated with developmental disorders such as autism. Unfortunately, there is lack of information regarding what strategies physicians should adopt in treating these symptoms and where they should look to refer individuals who present with severe symptoms of autism. This paper provides some preliminary information regarding the current behavioral assessment and treatment strategies in order to help physicians identify and make appropriate recommendations for successful treatment when working with autistic children. The essential components of successful treatment for autism are outlined; some preliminary treatment methodologies that physicians can recommend parents or caregivers attempt are also highlighted. In addition, the current behavioral treatment strategies used for acquisition of social skills and language are covered as well as methodologies for the reduction of maladaptive behavior in children with autism.
