Behavioral intervention for children with autism.

Abstract

TOPIC:

Autistic disorder is a pervasive developmental disorder characterized by deviant social interaction, communication, and behavior. It is a lifelong disability that affects 2-5/10,000 individuals. Children with autistic disorder are increasingly present in all patient care settings. Their behavior is often mystifying and overwhelming to professionals.

PURPOSE:

To offer specific information about appropriate intervention strategies that can be applied to impatient units, schools, community residences, and homes.

SOURCES:

Published information and clinical experience.

CONCLUSIONS:

Behavioral treatment methods provide guidance for the treatment of children with autism. However, they must be adapted to each child's specific circumstances. Additional research is needed to refine current behavioral treatment approaches.
