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
