A review of recent studies confirms the benefit of five types of behavioral therapies for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The authors reviewed scientific reports published since January 2010 and found that a wide range of behavioral interventions improved outcomes of people with ASD. Such scientific confirmation is crucial for securing health insurance coverage for bona fide ASD treatments.

Autism Speaks Transition Tool Kit was created to serve as a guide that can provide you with options to think about and explore as you and your adolescent with autism begin to plan for adulthood.
