Therapeutic Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorder
Intensive therapeutic intervention for ASD typically incorporates multiple therapeutic approaches that focus on the key social, communication and behavioral issues the individual child is experiencing. Multiple forms of therapy can be used to create a treatment program that addresses both core symptoms and associated symptoms of ASD.
