Can a Psychiatrist Treat Autism?

Yes, psychiatrists can often help autistic patients. While autism disorder has no “cure,” there are certainly methods of treatment and therapy that can help children and adults with autism improve in their ability to communicate and relate with those around them.

Additionally, autism is known to increase the likelihood of behavioral and psychiatric disorders such as anxiety, depression, and lack of proper sleep, all of which can be reduced with proper psychiatric care. Treatment plans are unique to each patient based on their case, but may include psychotherapy, medication and supplement planning, and health and lifestyle coaching.
