This three-part series, “Piecing Together the Puzzle,” explores the conundrum of autism in young children, the stage at which it is typically diagnosed and intervention becomes an immediate concern. Today’s article looks at the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and the predominant therapy. On Thursday we focus on the crucial transition at age 3 from early intervention to school-based special education. Next Sunday, we examine what researchers know about causes of autism and promising trends in medical and behavioral research.
