Liaison and referral

There should be liaison with Education Services, including Educational psychology and any specialist autism teaching support teams. Community paediatricians and speech therapists will also be involved in most cases. Clinical psychologists and child psychiatrists can provide parents with expert advice on the management of behavioural problems. Social Services can, depending on need, provide help in the home and advice on attendance and disability allowances. Respite care can be an important component of the management of children with autism.
