Autism Spectrum Disorder Symptoms can be Minimized with Proper Treatment
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences. Research has shown that early evaluation is crucial toward getting early intervention, which can greatly improve long-term outcomes for individuals across the spectrum.
We Can Help
Children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder often experience significant anxiety, mood difficulties, and behavior problems. Ross Center psychologists work closely with children and adolescents, parents, schools, and other providers to address these types of co-occurring issues. When appropriate, we refer patients to highly regarded local programs for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) or social skills treatment.
