Autism Treatment Options

There are loads of  literature on autism treatments over the internet, as you start digging into it, you'll find dozens of available options. Which are the "best" treatments? As the professionals will tell you over and over again, every child's needs are different. The treatments described in this article are among the best known, best researched, and most likely to produce positive result. Remember often times one treatment option alone won't work for you. You may have to provide your child combination of treatments which would complement each other . For example if a child is not attentive and has serious focus issues, it means that child has been experiencing some biological issues in his/her body which is preventing the child to focus on his/her activities. Although ABA addresses these issues it would take long time to see even a small progress. My son who has under gone ABA treatment when he was 2 years hasn't improved a little bit when he was on ABA therapy alone, but to our surprise when we introduced bio medical treatment along with ABA, he progressed leaps and bounds. He completed all his programs which were originally planned by his therapist for entire year.
