Advice for Parents

 
 

What Parents Need to Know

Guidelines used by the Autism Society of America include the following questions parents can ask about potential treatment for autism:

  • Are there assessment procedures specified?
  • Has the treatment been validated scientifically?
  • Will the treatment result in harm to my child?
  • How will failure of the treatment affect my child and family?
  • How will the treatment be integrated into my child's current program?

Do not become so infatuated with a given treatment that functional curriculum, vocational life, and social skills are ignored.

The National Institute of Mental Health suggests a list of questions parents can ask when planning for their child, including the following:

  • How successful has the program been for other children?
  • How are activities planned and organized?
  • Are there predictable daily schedules and routines?
  • How much individual attention will my child receive?
  • How is progress measured?
  • Will my child's behavior be closely observed and recorded?
  • Will my child be given tasks and rewards that are personally motivating?
  • Is the environment designed to minimize distractions?
  • Will the program prepare me to continue the therapy at home?
  • What is the cost, time commitment, and location of the program?
  • How many children have gone on to placement in a regular school and how have they performed?
Do staff members have training and experience in working with children and adolescents with autism?
