Lecture Description


November 13, 2009



Treatment of children with autism is complex, time intensive and expensive. Treatments must address core deficits (i.e., impairment in socialization, communication and behavior) and/or co-occurring symptoms or conditions (e.g., hyperactivity and aggression). One treatment modality cannot treat all symptoms. Dr. Susan Levy, University of Pennsylvania and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, describes standard and novel treatments, reports rationales for treatment selection by families and caregivers, and discuss the evidence based support for selected treatments and lessons learned.
