Welcome to American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Autism Initiatives. Given the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), all pediatric primary care providers should be prepared to care for children and youth with ASD and their families.
As the leading pediatric health organization in the United States, the American Academy of Pediatrics is uniquely positioned to provide support and evidence-based guidelines to pediatricians caring for children and youth with ASD.
Below you will find information about autism tools and resources for pediatricians. Autism resources for parents, families, and caregivers are available on the AAP parenting website,HealthyChildren.org.
