Intravenous news: News Medical report “For children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), routine medical procedures such as having their blood drawn can be very difficult. Communication and social interaction deficits and reliance on fixed routines experienced by many children with ASD are the significant factors to be considered when preparing a child with ASD for a blood draw. In an effort to help families and medical providers make necessary medical procedures less stressful, Autism Speaks – North America’s largest autism science and advocacy organization – today launched a new toolkit: “Taking the Work Out of Blood Work: Helping Your Child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder – A Parent’s Guide, and the companion: Taking the Work Out of Blood Work: Helping Your Patient with an Autism Spectrum Disorder – A Provider’s Guide. These unique guides, which help create the best possible experience for a child with ASD undergoing blood draws or routine medical procedures, were developed by experts from Autism Speaks Autism Treatment Network (ATN) in conjunction with the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.”
