Medical problems are treatable in people with autism

SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE: That the medical problems are “part of the autism” and since “we all know autism is incurable” there is no point in doing anything about them.

BUT NOW WE KNOW: Medical problems are treatable in autism just as they are treatable in anyone else, and treating them can make a dramatic difference in how well you do and even in the autism.

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Insist on care for medical problems, educate yourself about them, and advocate for more attention to the medical dimensions of autism.
