Clinic Notes: What to do when your child is first diagnosed

What do you do when your child is first diagnosed? I am convinced that multiple clinical interventions at an early age can dramatically alter the course of autism or some other neuropsychological disorders and improve the quality of life for the family. Pediatric neurologists, Speech-Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Psychologists versed in ABA should be part of the treatment team as needed. The next question then becomes who is going to pay for these services and that will be the topic of tomorrows post.
