This may be possible for scheduled procedures or surgeries but not for emergency surgery. Check on the policy at your hospital ahead of time. Your child’s anesthesiologist will make the final decision. Remember, if you stay with your child when anesthesia is given, the purpose of being there is to support your child and ease her fears.

They may attempt to communicate through their behaviors. For example, children with ASDs may have a hard time telling their parents that they do not want to do an activity that is requested of them and throw a tantrum instead of using words. Many children with ASDs also are impulsive and may be over-responsive or under-responsive to sensory or environmental input. These qualities can lead to behavioral challenges, as might their repetitive behaviors or interest in sameness. They may become very upset when there is change in their routine. They may not understand why another child may not want to play exactly the way they want to. Each child's behavior is unique. Learning behavioral principles can help you increase the likelihood your child will respond how you would like him to and reduce problem behaviors. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document577_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document577_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Discussing the Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) With Your Child Cómo hablar del diagnóstico de trastornos del espectro del autismo con su hijo autism_spectrum_disorder autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166356 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166355 Parents may wonder about when and whether to tell their child about his autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis.

Young children with symptoms of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) often lack some of these developmental skills, and they need to learn them. The goal of EI is to help young children gain developmental skills and to teach families some specific skills to meet their child's unique needs. It is important to get help for your child as soon as possible. The earlier a child gets into EI, the better the outcome can be. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document579_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document579_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Emergency Information Form For Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) Consejos en español para la familia sobre ASD—Planilla de información de emergencia para niños con trastornos del espectro del autismo autistic_disorder emergencies first_aid autism_spectrum_disorder autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=172837 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=172836 Family handout from Autism: Caring for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians, 2nd Edition, developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Council on Children With Disabilities Autism Subcommittee (ASC). https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document602_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document602_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Financial Assistance and Related Programs for Families Asistencia financiera y otros programas autistic_disorder financial_support waivers autism_spectrum_disorder pediatric_care autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166360 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166359 Many children with ASDs are able to get support from programs funded through their state or county. Some examples are financial help, education support, medical care, job skills training, and residential or living services. Some supports are available to all children because of federal laws, such as a free public education, including special education if the child is eligible. Other public benefits are based on need, such as financial or how serious the disability is.

By law, when a person turns 18, her parents are no longer allowed to make medical or legal decisions for her. The only way parents can continue making decisions for their child is to become their adult child's legal guardian. It is best to start the process in a timely manner well before the teen's 18th birthday. A legal guardian usually makes all decisions about the adult child's well-being. Some families may choose to divide decision-making duties between the guardian and a conservator. A conservator takes care of the individual's financial affairs only. When the adult with an ASD can make personal and health decisions but not complex financial ones (especially those relating to Social Security or other governmental funding for daily care), she may need only a conservator. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document582_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document582_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Health Care Transition: Moving From Adolescence to Adulthood La transición en la asistencia médica: el paso de la adolescencia a la adultez autism_spectrum_disorder autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166366 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166365 Moving into adulthood can be challenging for any young person with or without autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).

While speech and occupational therapy are important, the social and communication differences of a child with an ASD need a therapy team. That team should use special intervention strategies that do not necessarily depend on imitation or understanding social cues. A coordinated approach to intervention that is evidence-based is recommended. This means that there have been scientific studies that prove that the intervention helps children with ASDs. No matter what approach to therapy is used for your child with an ASD, it is very important that caregivers are involved and can use the approach at home and in the community as they interact with the child. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document586_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document586_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Introduction to Complementary and Alternative Medicine Introducción a la medicina complementaria y alternativa alternative_medicine autistic_disorder complementary_therapies autism_spectrum_disorder https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166374 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166373 Complementary medicine refers to practices that are used in addition to the educational, behavioral, and medical interventions recommended by your child's pediatrician and schools. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document587_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document587_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Lab Tests Pruebas de laboratorio autism_spectrum_disorder pediatric_care autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166376 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166375 All children have some lab tests at birth and as part of normal checkups. Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) often need more tests. These tests can help find the cause of the disability or problems related to an ASD that may not be obvious and guide the doctor in treating your child most effectively. New genetic tests now make it possible to find an underlying cause for ASDs in many more children than was previously possible. Genetic testing can also provide information about the likelihood of an ASD in future children or for children of other family members. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document588_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document588_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Medications and Your Child Los medicamentos y su hijo autism_spectrum_disorder safety_and_prevention pediatric_care autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166380 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166379 Medications are not the primary treatment for autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).

Children with ASDs may be picky eaters, so their parents may be concerned that they are not getting the nutrients they need. For example, if a child doesn't drink milk (because the child refuses or because of a special diet), the child may not get enough calcium and vitamin D. If a child doesn't eat enough foods made from grains, she may not get enough fiber and B vitamins. Some children with ASDs have such a limited diet that they are at risk for nutritional disorders. They may also be at higher risk for low iron intake. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document591_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document591_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—School-based Services Servicios escolares autism_spectrum_disorder autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166384 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166383 Schools can provide extra help to students who are struggling with the regular curriculum in several ways, even if a child does not have a diagnosed disability. The teacher in a regular classroom can informally try different teaching approaches than the one used for the rest of the class. The classroom teacher can consult with other teachers and provide individual attention or other teaching strategies without having to have a child get additional testing. This first level of extra help is called response to intervention (RTI). If a child needs more help than can be provided by the classroom team, a committee on special education (CSE) might advise using school-supported resources according to a plan. This type of agreed-on intervention is called a Section 504 plan after the federal law that describes it. If a child needs to have formal testing to establish learning and language diagnoses and needs modification to curriculum, the CSE may recommend a formal Individualized Education Program (IEP). The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Grants to States Program Part B gives local schools funding for students aged 3 to 21 years with disabilities who qualify for IEPs. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document592_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document592_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Seizures and Epilepsy Convulsiones y epilepsia epilepsy seizures autistic_disorder autism_spectrum_disorder autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166386 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166385 Seizures are caused by sudden excessive electrical activity in the brain.

One-third to half of children with ASDs have sleep problems. This can lead to daytime problems with paying attention, being irritable, and displaying more repetitive behaviors. The amount of nighttime sleep needed by preschoolers in general is typically 10 to 13 hours. It decreases with age to 8 to 11 hours by 13 years. Sleep problems can end up affecting parents and caregivers as well as the child with an ASD because they often lose sleep themselves caring for the child who is awake. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document595_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document595_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Talking About Sexuality for Parents of Teens with Autism Spectrum Disorders Cómo hablar sobre sexualidad para padres de adolescentes con trastornos del espectro del autismo sexual_health_and_sexuality autism_spectrum_disorder autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166392 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166391 All children and youth, including those with developmental disabilities and autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), have questions about physical changes in their bodies and emotions and feelings they experience during puberty and as they grow up.

This partnership is at the core of what the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) calls the medical home. Medical home is an approach primary care practices can use to provide comprehensive and compassionate care. This approach helps coordinate the medical care and other services your child needs into an integrated overall plan for your child's health. Because of the effectiveness of this approach and the benefits that patients receive under this care model, the AAP and other medical organizations have endorsed the medical home as an important part of caring for individuals with lifelong conditions. It is important for families and clinicians to feel like they have a constructive partnership for the care of the child. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document589_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document589_sp.pdf ASDs Family Handout—Toilet Training Entrenamiento para usar el baño autistic_disorder toilet_training autism_spectrum_disorder newborns_infants_and_toddlers autism_spectrum_disorders_family_handouts https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166396 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166395 Children with ASDs often have delayed development or may be obsessed with their own routines or anxious about learning a new skill.

The consensus of health professionals based on scientific research is that there is no evidence that vaccines cause ASDs.

This behavior is considered common and short-lived in toddlers, but it may persist in children and adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).

These facts will help you and your children make every bike ride safe. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document311_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document311_sp.pdf Biking (Care of the Young Athlete) physical_activity bicycling injury_prevention bicycle_safety safety_and_prevention sports_and_fitness https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=156785 Biking is a fun way for children of all ages to get active and stay fit. Most children learn to ride a tricycle at around 3 years of age. Between 4 and 7 years of age most children learn to ride a bike. However, remember that each child is different and will learn to ride a bike at his or her own pace. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document278_en.pdf Birth to 6 Months: Safety for Your Child Del Nacimiento A Los 6 Meses fall burns car_seats choking newborn_care_management home_safety_education positions_on_back_for_sleep newborns_infants_and_toddlers safety_and_prevention safety_sheets https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166207 https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166206 Did you know that hundreds of children younger than 1 year die every year in the United States because of injuries — most of which could be prevented? https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document312_en.pdf https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/peo_document312_sp.pdf Bites (Human and Animal) infectious_diseases https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166477 Biting is very common among young children but usually does not lead to serious infectious disease issues. If the skin is broken, bacteria introduced into the wound can cause a tissue infection that needs to be treated by a health professional. If blood is drawn into the mouth of the biter or if the biter breaks the skin and has bleeding gums or mouth sores, blood-borne disease could be a concern. Hepatitis B virus, HIV, and hepatitis C virus are examples of blood-borne disease-causing germs. The risk of transmission of these viruses, however, is very low in child care and school settings. For HIV, no known transmission in a child care setting or school has occurred. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/ppe_document040_en_secured.pdf Bleeding Disorders: An Overview chronic_health_needs https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166447 Bleeding disorders vary in types and severity, so it is best to get details about the specific child’s needs from parents/ guardians and the child’s specialty doctors. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/ppe_document009_en_secured.pdf Boil/Abscess/Cellulitis infectious_diseases https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=166478 These are bacterial infections of the skin that usually begin from a scratch or bug bite and progress to a red nodule that fills with pus. Boils are superficial infections with a thin layer of skin over fluid; abscesses are generally larger and deeper with redness and painful swelling over an area filled with pus. Cellulitis is an infection within the skin and the area just beneath it; the skin is red and tender. The area of cellulitis can spread quickly. https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/data/GbosContainer/5/ppe_document041_en_secured.pdf Born Early (Preterm): At the Hospital newborns_infants_and_toddlers https://patiented.solutions.aap.org/handout.aspx?gbosid=156768 Preterm (premature) birth occurs in about 11 to 13 percent of pregnancies in the US.

Bullying most commonly takes place at school, when adults are not watching, or through email or instant messages.
