Impact of the Diagnosis Message to Doctors

Video Summary

Christian's mother discusses her difficulty finding doctors with expertise in autism and its treatment. She describes her struggles finding appropriate treatment and support after Christian was diagnosed as particularly difficult.

"Message to Doctors: You really owe it to yourself and to your patients to educate yourself. If Christian had had cystic fibrosis or leukemia, any pediatrician would have done a great job with him. Because he had autism they just didn't know..."
— Mom of Christian H.
