Caring for children with Autism in healthcare settings

Neurodiverse children can have a different way of seeing the world and responding to it, and this should be understood and taken into account by medical professionals. Providing a safe and responsive environment can lead to breaking down barriers in communication and decreasing distress felt by children and parents. This promotes more positive memories of the healthcare system and can lessen trauma.
