What To Discuss With Your Patient’s Parent or Caregiver

Clinicians should discuss with parents of their patients: types of therapies and specialists to consider; educational options (given the severity of the ASD); treatment goals and realistic expectations; side effects of medications and the longevity of those side effects; daily routine; issues related to diet modification; support groups, local services, and sources of trusted information; the experience of treatment team in working with children who have ASDs; and insurance coverage.
