Study: Improving emergency room visits for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder
from PR Newswire
How healthcare workers interact with young patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) — and their families — can turn an emergency room or urgent care experience into a positive one, according to a newly published study in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. Researchers found that to improve parent visit satisfaction, staff should focus on how they interact with patients with ASD — such as addressing the child directly and communicating with the child at a level appropriate to their cognitive and social development.
