Pediatricians and Family Practice

Routine childhood preventive care, including annual physical evaluations, routine inoculations, and other first line health concerns are a priority for the primary care physician, family physician, and general pediatrician. These doctors care for any illness, including cold, ear infection, and injury. General  pediatricians also play an important role in monitoring side effects of medications children may be taking. Additionally they will note if there are other concerns and will help families locate specialists for any additional care that might be indicated. General pediatricians will also help families interpret the results of a specialist’s evaluation.

Check with your pediatrician to see what age they would be willing to see your child.  Some pediatricians stop seeing children once they turn 18 years, others will go until they are 21 or 22 years.

Below is our listing of family recommended “autism-friendly” doctors.  As always, do your homework to find a doctor which is the best fit for your family.
