Treatments

A variety of treatment options exist for a child with a developmental delay or disorder. Though we have placed a special emphasis on treatments for autism spectrum disorders, these treatments may include: treatment approaches, clinical therapies, complementary therapies, biomedical treatments, family support, and service delivery models.

This information is for educational purposes only and does not imply the endorsement of First Signs.

When parents learn that their child has a developmental delay or disorder, one of the first questions they ask their physician is “What can be done?” This section will provide resources to assist professionals and parents in their evaluation of the range of treatments available.

Treatments and interventions might best be understood as part of caring for a child rather than curing a child. Children have complex and variable developmental pathways; accordingly, any treatments should be based on the unique needs of an individual child in consultation with medical and clinical professionals. First Signs recommends that reasonable caution be used with any treatment. Inclusion of a specific treatment on the First Signs Web site does not imply our endorsement of that method. The information in this section is for educational purposes only.

Parents and physicians will find that there are hundreds of treatments currently available for children with autism and other developmental disorders. First Signs will provide detailed information in the future about the major types of treatments, therapies, and approaches for children with autism and other developmental disorders.
