Kids With Autism Common Users of ERs, Study Says
Date:12/7/2012

study first author Luther Kalb, a research scientist in the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, said in the news release.

The study was published recently in the journal Pediatric Emergency Care.

About one in 88 children in the United States has an autism diagnosis, and the use of the emergency department to treat mental health problems in these children is likely to increase unless changes occur, the researchers said.

They noted that the often chaotic nature of emergency departments can worsen mental health issues in children with autism.

"Children with autism, especially those with co-occurring psychotic disorders or severe behaviors, need to have an emergency crisis plan in place," Kalb said. "Everyone involved in the life of a child with autism, from parents to medical professionals to school educators, needs to have routine discussions about what to do in the case of an escalating situation."

The U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke has more about autism.
