This is not a simple issue. I would invest $ in subscription to uptodate.com for one month. Read everything there about Autism including the Basics and Beyond the Basics. Then discuss with patient's Dr. If they give you permission to do so.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
