Abstract

Introduction. Autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) are characterized by qualitative deficits in communication, social skills and a restrictive repertoire of interests and behaviors. Recent studies suggest that they may represent one of the most prevalent neurodevelopmental disorders. Method. Treatment of core deficits of ASD are primarily speech and language, behavioral and educational interventions. Clinical management of ASD requires a multidisciplinary approach to identify behaviors that could interfere with the individual's ability to benefit from those interventions. Medications, such as neuroleptics, antiepileptic drugs, SSRI's, neurostimulants and others have been used to target specific behaviors. Conclusions. Further research is much needed if medications are eventually to have a greater role in the treatment of core ASD symptoms. Recent attempts at neurosurgical interventions cannot be justified by our present level of knowledge.
