ABSTRACT
The article discusses the need for care coordination for those with autism. There is a perception among those with autism, family caregivers, and medical professionals who specialize in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) that the healthcare system provides inadequate medical care for those on the autism spectrum. People with ASD often have greater medical needs, but without healthcare professionals who are able to interact effectively with patients, access to care could be delayed or denied.
