Early idenification.
Applied behavioral analysis, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medications for severe aggression, hyperactivity, or even with repetitive behaviors. Risperdal is actually an fda approved medication to treat autism. Group therapy. Support groups. And dont forget a multivitamin!
