Why Identification Matters

So what to do as a caregiver? Monitor the child's development, take action if you are concerned, don't settle for the "wait and see" approach, and trust your instincts. Any sign of regression is concerning. The younger your child, the greater the impact of treatment on symptoms of autism. But no matter the child's age, don't lose hope. Treatment can reduce the disorder's effects and help the child learn, grow, and thrive. (Helpguide.org). Seek help if you are concerned. Pediatricians and Early Developmental Networks are great starting points. Public schools serve children from birth to 21, so a call to school will also get you started on a path to support. Early identification leads to treatment of this neurodevelopmental disorder.
