Three Approaches to Autism Intervention

As clinicians we are often faced with questions from families about the “best” program for autism intervention. While autistic children may receive a range of services including speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and social skills help, some in the community, the anchor to most programs is some form of behavioral health treatment. The latest issue of The Carlat Child Psychiatry Report includes a clinical update describing the three main approaches to autism intervention. In this podcast, Mara and I will break down the three main autism intervention approaches, and provide you with information that will help you improve on your abilities to recognize which particular autism intervention might be best for a specific patient.
