In brief: A wide range

Autism creates so many types of problems that many specialists may be needed, including speech and language therapists, behavioral therapists, teachers, psychologists, occupational therapists, and psychiatrists.
There is no true cure for the disorder, so treatments usually focus on fostering developing of delayed skills and minimizing behavioral problems.
