Reports Help Identify and Manage Autism

JAMA. 2007;298(22):2610. doi:10.1001/jama.298.22.2610

Health experts are advising all physicians who care for children to look for early signs of autism spectrum disorders.

Two new clinical reports from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) provide information on the early diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders, including autistic disorder, Asperger disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder–not otherwise specified. Both reports will be part of the new AAP practical resource for pediatricians, AUTISM: Caring for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians.
