Identification, Evaluation, and Management of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder

For the first time in 12 years, the American Academy of Pediatrics has issued a report that includes updated clinical recommendations on autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The 71-page report provides updates on the increasing number of children with ASD, as well as expanded knowledge on risk factors, co-occurring medical and behavioral conditions, genetic contributions, and the body of research on evidence-based interventions.

This updated document aims to provide primary care providers with a summary of current information in a single report that will help guide them in providing a medical home for the patient with ASD. The document is searchable by topic and includes a glossary and a section on working with families. Read more about and access the report here.

The Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities (OCECD) is the Parent Training and Information Center for the state. It offers training sessions and workshops on a variety of topics of interest to parents of children with disabilities and to the professionals who serve them. OCECD training sessions provide parents with the information they need to become informed members of their child's Individual Education Planning Team (IEP). OCECD trainings promote parent-professional collaboration and ongoing partnership to support educational and service planning. In addition, OCECD offers training to support parents facing the challenges of disability in their day-to-day lives.
