Autism Caring for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder:
A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians, 2nd Edition - Digital Download


Autism rates continue to rise. The latest CDC reports estimate that 1 in 68 children and teens has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It means that every pediatric care provider will confront autism-related challenges more often.

Autism: Caring for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians, 2nd Edition, has been developed to assist clinicians in the recognition, diagnosis, and management of children with ASDs across the life span. All content has been extensively reviewed by AAP committees, councils, and sections, and parents of children and youth with ASDs.

Look here for current AAP autism clinical reports and policy statements and expert ASD screening, surveillance, diagnosis, treatment, and referral guidelines. And dozens of family handouts in English and Spanish are included.
