Where can I Find Treatment

Information regarding where to find treatment was probably included in part of your research about treatment options. Treatments may be done at home, in doctors’ and specialists’ offices, hospital clinics, or at special schools or centers. Where you find treatment also depends on the age of your child when he or she is first diagnosed.

Again, by speaking with as many parents and practitioners in the field as you can, you’ll not only find the right treatment choice for your child but you’ll learn where they take place.

A combination of treatments may be recommended for your child that will require taking him from one place to another.  Often a hospital or clinic setting will house several treatment specialists under one roof.  For some families, treatments in your home may be an option.

For children older than three, pre-school programs and special education programs within a classroom setting may be available through your local school district.
