Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

COVID-19 is now among the phases 2 and 3. The lockdown has been significantly reduced compared with phase 1. However, the centers and institutions that deal with the diagnosis and intervention of children with autism spectrum condition (ASC) require rapid functional adaptation to respond to patients’ needs. In this situation the handle of young children with ASC was challenging also for families and caregivers. This brief report aims to give some advice summarized in 10 tips to help therapists, families, and caregivers to handle ASC during this period. The COVID-19 is questioning the routine of our young children with ASC, and we must find creative adjustments to be close to our patients and their families.
