About this Item

156 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.4in.Professionals from diverse professional backgrounds participated in training about early detection of autism spectrum disorders. The results showed that professionals will use an autism screen once they are taught how to use a screen. Practitioners reported that they were more likely to use an autism screen if a child exhibited developmental concerns. A major policy implication of the study is that some pediatricians in Bermuda do not view developmental screening or autism screening as a part of their professional responsibility. Unfortunately, children from birth to 23 months are often not developmentally screened by a pediatrician. A parent often has to wait two or more years for their child to receive a developmental screen by a professional. To combat this delay in time, families with ample financial resources will often travel to the U. S. or Canada to obtain screening for ASD and to possibly receive a diagnosis for their child. This creates several problems including a drain of finances, a loss of time, and a loss of access to early intervention. These issues can be addressed by training professionals to recognize the signs for ASD. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
