Answer

Recommendations regarding autism spectrum disorders include the following:

  • Screening in children suspected of having language delays, restricted or repetitive behavior patterns, or deficits in social functioning (as identified by caregiver or because of professional concerns)
  • Refer to an experienced professional for comprehensive assessment and management of an autism spectrum disorder following positive screening or if ongoing concerns exist
