The Process of Diagnosing an Autism Spectrum Disorder Part 4: Results and Recommendations for Therapies
Part 4 begins six months after the three part evaluative process when Laura returns to Mt. Sinai to speak with Dr. Kolevzon, the Clinical Director. In this session, Dr. Kolevzon discusses the results of the evaluation and they consider ongoing treatment options. Laura describes Greg's progress in his therapy program, which includes Applied Behavior Analysis and speech and occupational therapy, and Dr. Kolevzon suggests further therapy options as Gregory's abilities continue to improve. Both he and Laura are optimistic about Gregory's future.
"You can't give up, you can't expect him to get it on the first time...or even the 50th time. Eventually...he'll understand. "
— Laura (Gregory's Mother)
