Autism spectrum disorder in under 19s: support and management - National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
This guideline covers children and young people with autism spectrum disorder (across the full range of intellectual ability) from birth until their 19th birthday. It covers the different ways that health and social care professionals can provide support, treatment and help for children and young people with autism, and their families and carers, from the early years through to their transition into young adult life.
This guideline should be used alongside autism spectrum disorder in under 19s: recognition, referral and diagnosis and autism spectrum disorder in adults: diagnosis and management.
In June 2021, we added new recommendations on interventions for feeding problems, including restricted diets to highlight the need for assessment and referral for children and young people. For more information, see the update decision.
