Health Tip: Dealing With an Autism Spectrum Disorder
What parents can do

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- If your child has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, getting the right help and information can help your child obtain appropriate care.

The U.S. National Institute of Mental Health offers these suggestions:

  • Keep detailed notes of all meetings, appointments and conversations with health care professionals about your child's condition.
  • Contact advocacy groups or your local health department for information about nearby support programs.
  • Contact your pediatrician, your child's school or a local support group to find an autism expert in your area who can help you devise an appropriate treatment plan.
