Autism is fast growing serious neurodevelopmental disability. Latest US incidence figures suggest 1 in 88 children are affected by autism. Early diagnosis and intervention is crucial.
Treatment of the core symptoms includes medication or therapy or most commonly, both. Children with autism may have associated neurological problems like seizures, sleep problems, etc. These have to be treated appropriately to ensure they do not impede improvement of the autistic behavioural patterns.
We at Kokilaben Hospital are proud to announce a team that will offer comprehensive care to patients with autistic spectrum disorder. We have a competent team that is devoted to assist the child and the family at every step- right from diagnosis to therapy.
Every child with autism is unique. They benefit most from a personalised autism intervention plan formulated to meet the individual’s and family’s needs. The immediate goals of the therapy are to improve social and language skills. The ultimate goal is to enable the child to function independently in our society.
Our rehabilitation team consists of Clinical Psychologist, Paediatric Occupational Therapists and Paediatric Speech and Language Therapists. The mainstays of the therapy in autism consist of behavioural therapy/occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy. Our therapists will assess the child and formulate a therapy program according to the individual needs. We also offer home-based programs for families coming from outside Mumbai.
We offer a comprehensive package to first time patients. It consists of:
Session each with Paediatric Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language therapist
Essential investigations (BERA under sedation and Blood Tests - Thyroid Profile and CPK)
