Therapy, by definition, is the attempted remediation of a health problem, usually following a diagnosis. There are several different types of therapy. Preventative therapy is treatment that is intended to prevent a medical condition from occurring. Supportive therapy is one that does not treat or improve the underlying condition, but instead increases the patients comfort.
Autism therapy attempts to lesson the deficits and family distress associated with autism. Therapy is tailored to the child’s needs. There are two different types that treatments fall into to. The first is educational and the second is medical management. Play therapy, also known as floor therapy, is play-based which builds on autistic children’s own interest to develop relationships as well as communication and social skills.
