Pediatricians' Group Issues New Autism Guidelines
Date:10/29/2007

Cynthia Johnson, director of the Autism Center at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. "If families feel dismissed by their doctor, they may not disclose all the treatments they're trying."

The management report also noted that some medical issues are common in children with autism spectrum disorders, such as sleep disturbances and gastrointestinal trouble, and that pediatricians need to be aware that these may be a problem.

Johnson said both reports were very well done and comprehensive. Nishawala also felt the new recommendations were comprehensive but said it might have been helpful to include additional information about which therapies have been debunked in autism treatment.
