Literature suggests that there is a needed change when caring for children with autism in the perioperative area. Gaps exist in how providers care for children with ASD. Do they have a plan, is there a tool to assess the child, do we involve parents, and do we have streamlined processes for their care in this area?
At present, anesthesia providers care for patients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with little evidence to guide them. The most recent literature suggests that plans of care and streamlined processes are necessary, however, these processes and plans are rarely used. Plans of care allow for individualized care, rather than fitting a child on the spectrum into a guideline. Protocols for care and best practices are necessary to care for each child with ASD, as each child has varying degrees of needs and assessment tools are available to guide care of each individual child.
Best practices are needed in order to provide care for children with ASD. Changing how to care for the patients, altering processes to fit each child’s needs, planning times, using assessment tools, and teams to streamline processes in order to minimize or alleviate the stress that can occur when changing schedules or environments for children with autism.
