Ideas for Scrapbookers....Blog Hop (and RAK)

Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders

Thanks for joining the Ideas For Scrapbookers blog hop today. If you've been hopping along, you just came from Sarah's blog where you learned about medical issues that accompany autism. If you've just joined the hop, you can get a list of all the participating Artists here. I'm going to be sharing information about the treatment autism.

Right now, the main research-based treatment for ASDs is intensive structured teaching of skills, often called behavioral intervention. It is very important to begin this intervention as early as possible in order to help a child reach his or her full potential. Acting early can make a real difference! Some of the approaches may include:

•Occupational Therapy

•Physical Therapy

•Behavior Modification

•Communication Therapy

•Social Skills Therapy

•Dietary Modification

•Medicine

•Sensory Integration Therapy

To learn more, please visit Autism Society of America

Thank you for hopping along on our Autism Awareness blog hop. We hope that you have enjoyed learning more about this issue that affects so many. If you missed some of the blogs, please go to the Ideas for Scrapbookers site where you can find a complete list of the participating blogs.

Leave me a comment so I'll know you've stopped by. I'll be drawing a name (on April 30)from those who leave a comment and sending out a little RAK. Have a great week, and until next time.....

Hugs!

Early Intervention is key...I just wish that there were more resources for these children but it is such a complex disorder that each and every child on the spectrum is so different in what they may be needing at any given time. I appreciate that you have enlightened some people on this topic. Thanks from me & my child with Aspergers! Cheryl
