Presentation      Abstract/Bio

Behavioral and biomedical approaches have been used individually for treating children with autism. However, optimization and best possible outcomes can achieved when these two approaches are implemented together. If indicated, biomedical interventions should be utilized concurrently with behavioral therapies in an attempt to stabilize a child's medical conditions and achieve an overall improved state of health. By doing so, a healthier, happier child will be more responsive to therapy.
