Summary:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which provides multisite surveillance of the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder, reports that the average prevalence of ASD among those aged 8 years is about 1 in 59 children, and four times more common in boys than girls (Baio et al., 2018). Healthcare professionals of various disciplines working in schools, pediatrics, psychiatry, and outpatient, inpatient, and prehospital settings may encounter individuals with a pervasive developmental disorder also known as ASD. Healthcare professionals who are knowledgeable about ASD, diagnostic and treatment approaches, and the clinician’s role can provide support for both the individuals and their families.

Objectives:

The goal of this educational program is to update nurses’, dietitians’, health educators’, and social workers’ knowledge of the identification, classification, management, and clinical interventions for patients with autism spectrum disorder.
 
After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Differentiate among levels of autism spectrum disorder and their prevalence.
