How is Autism treated?
The best time for optimum results is before the child turns 3. That does not mean those ages from 3-7 will not recover. The older the child is the more intensive the intervention needs to be. It may take them a little longer to recover.
Evidence Based Treatment Includes: Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Early Intervention Program (EIP) & regular multidisciplinary meetings together with a Child Psychiatrist or a Child Psychologist
Louis Center Seremban has a special highly intensive program for children with Autism. Do read about our program to get an idea about what your child needs.If what your child is getting now is insufficient, you can join our "Parents as Therapists" initiative.
