What Are the Treatment Options for Autism?

Autism is a lifelong condition - autism cannot be cured

But knowing what is going on can help enormously – your child will then be able to receive the correct support they need and receiving a diagnosis can help increase others understanding of your child’s behaviour.

This will provide the parent and child with the coping skills necessary to support an individual on the autistic spectrum. It will also help you to address the social stigma associated with autism and allow you to manage your child’s behaviour within the home, school and social situations.

The treatment will enable you to decrease stress levels and problems within the family environment, making home a much easier place to be when dealing with the behavioural issues presented by your child.


Clinical Partners can also help you deal with the challenges that having a child with these kind of differences can bring.

  • We can arrange follow up testing should your Consultant Psychiatrist think this would be helpful
  • We can offer your child sessions with a psychologist or psychotherapist with lots of experience in helping children develop coping strategies for some of the difficulties this condition can bring
  • We can offer counselling support for you and your family should you need it. Read more about how family therapy can help when a family member has autism here
  • We can offer parenting advice, which can be really helpful in managing difficult situations as stress free as possible.
  • We have a team of educational psychologists who will be able to support you and your child and work with your school in order to support SEN applications and create IEP's (Individualized Educational Plan)

Getting a diagnosis can be a big step but one that can have lots of positive outcomes.

Luke Jackson, a teenager with Asperger’s wrote a book called ‘Freaks, Geeks and Asperger’s Syndrome’. In it he talks about reading through an article that listed all the symptoms, before he was formally diagnosed:

“As I read through the article my first reaction was relief. It was as if I had a weight lifted off my shoulders. I had finally found out the reason why other people classed me as weird.
I finally knew why I felt different, why I felt as if I was a freak, why I didn’t seem to fit in.
Even better, it was not my fault!”

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.

  • Thank you for setting us (and me in particular) off down the road. I will always be grateful to you, and I do feel that you spent a lot of time on my case without much reward.
