Connecting The Pieces: A Program For Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder and Their Families in an Outpatient Surgery Setting

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) visit healthcare providers more frequently than typically developing children. The process of having surgery can be chaotic, confusing, loud, and full of transitions, which are all potential stress triggers for children with ASD. A program designed to fit the unique needs of these patients can help increase patients’ understanding of hospitalization, decrease stress, encourage positive coping techniques, and create a more family-centered care environment.
