The Need for Autism Training and Certification
Many of the patients you see every day for other healthcare needs are also autistic or have sensory sensitivities. Autistic individuals are 52 times more likely to go to a doctor or therapist and they are 4-8x more likely to go to the Emergency Department, yet most healthcare providers don’t have training on how to best communicate and provide care for these patients. There is also some danger of misdiagnosing these patients or not being able to provide care due to sensory overload or other complications.
Find out how your facility can better provide for autistic patients and ensure they have a hospital they can trust.
