Autism Speaks Challenging Behaviors Tool Kit. Sometimes the difficulties of autism can lead to behaviors that are quite challenging to understand and address. The guiding principle used in developing this kit is that each individual with autism and their family should feel safe and supported, and live a healthy life filled with purpose, dignity, choices and happiness.
Gary S. Mayerson, Founding Attorney, Mayerson and Associates, answers questions about hospitals, providing information for parents and guardians of people with autism spectrum disorder.
1) What are the responsibilities of a hospital and your rights regarding medical interventions? 2) Is the hospital required to provide behavioral supports? 3) If my child is in the hospital, what happens to their schooling? 4) What happens if my child is being repeatedly kicked out of school and sent to hospital settings? Are there any other options? 5) If an adult is in residential placement, what is the responsibility of the facility or home in a crisis situation?
