Children with autism may have problems with communication, social skills, and reacting to the world around them. Not all behaviors will exist in every child. A diagnosis should be made by the child’s doctor or other professionals with experience in working with children with autism.
It is important to have your child evaluated by professionals who know about autism. Pediatricians, as well as neurologists, speech-language pathologists (SLPs), occupational therapists, physical therapists, and child development specialists, among others, may help diagnose autism.
SLPs play a key role because problems with social skills and communication are often the first symptoms of autism. SLPs should be consulted early in the evaluation process. There are several tests and observational checklists available to evaluate children with developmental problems. The most important information, however, comes from parents and caregivers who know the child best and can tell the SLP and others all about the child’s behavior.
There is no known cure for autism. In some cases, medications and dietary restrictions may help control symptoms.
Intervention should begin when the child is young. Early intervention and preschool programs are very important. An evaluation by an SLP should be completed to determine social skill and communication needs. An appropriate treatment plan that meets the needs of the child and family can then be established. Treatment may include any combination of traditional speech and language approaches, augmentative and alternative communication, and behavioral interventions.
