A   pediatrician   will   refer   the   caregiver   and   the   child   to   a   specialist   in   developmental 
disorders   for   the   assessment.   Some   people   may   want   to   have   this   specialist   treat   their 
child's condition, but they are free to seek Autism treatment elsewhere.


There   is   no   standard  Autism   treatment,   and   different   professionals   have   different 
philosophies and practices in caring for their patients.


You may want to talk to more than one specialist to find the one with whom you feel most  
comfortable.




Autism  treatment   strategies  used  in   autism   include  behavioral,   educational,   biomedical, 
and   complementary   therapies.   Some   of   these   are   supported   by   scientific   studies,   while 
others   are   not.   It   is   important   to   discuss   and   consider   the   research   support   for   the 
treatments chosen.


Specialized   therapies.   These   include   speech,   occupational,   and   physical   therapy.   These 
therapies  are  important  components  of  managing   autism  and   should   all  be included   in 
various  aspects  of  the child's treatment program. Speech  therapy  can help a child  with 
autism improve language and social skills to communicate more effectively. Occupational 
and physical therapy can help improve any deficiencies in coordination and motor skills. 
Occupational therapy may also help a child with autism to learn to process information 
from the senses (sight, sound, hearing, touch, and smell) in more manageable ways.


There is no cure for autism; however, with appropriate Autism treatment and education, 
many children with the disorder can learn and develop. Early intervention often can reduce 
challenges   associated   with   the   disorder,   lessen   disruptive   behavior,   and   provide   some 
degree of independence.


Autism   treatment   depends   on   the   individual   needs   of   the   patient.   In   most   cases,   a 
combination   of   treatment   methods   is   more   effective.   Autism   usually   requires   lifelong  
treatment.


For   over   20   years,   the  ALCAT  Test   has   provided   both   patients   as   well   as   healthcare 
professionals with a tool to successfully overcome a wide variety of conditions which result 
from food & chemical intolerances/sensitivities.
