How to start biomedical intervention for ASD Children

Basic Introduction: Biomedical intervention should be part of a comprehensive and complete intervention plan.

A complete intervention plan includes:
• Biomedical interventions (with dietary interventions)
• One on one behavioral intervention: (i.e. ABA, speech, occupational therapy, floortime, TEAACH, RDI, VBA)
