Collaborative Approach to Autism: A Parent’s Perspective

Authored by Quirantes, D. in J Spec Pediatr Nurs., Volume 14, Issue 3, p. 203-205, (2009).

Article summary (posted May 11, 2010):


Successful treatment for autism is best achieved when parents and physicians work together with skilled professionals and therapists to execute a well-developed treatment plan.

This letter to a journal is written by a woman who is both a nurse and a mother to an eight year old boy with autism. She describes how many large cities have autism treatment teams in place, and doctors should be able to refer parents to these teams. Treatments are not cheap, though, and parents need help working through the healthcare system to find ways to pay for treatment. One of the problems that parents have is teaching other people about autism and what to expect from a child with autism. Parents want people to know that a child is a human being who knows what is going on even if he cannot speak.
