There are a number of co-occurring medical conditions associated with autism. Treatment of underlying medical conditions can improve a child's health, as well as their behavior, communication, and socialization. Many children benefit from a combination of medical treatment and targeted therapy. This month, TACA focuses on addressing many of these co-occurring medical issues while providing support to families.
