Provision of early comprehensive care for children with ASD: problems and solutions



Present article describes actual problems of early comprehensive care for children with autism spectrum disor¬ders, as well as solutions to these problems on the example of the region. Realization of the early intervention system is possible through the establishment of habilitation and developmental environment, which is a spe¬cially organized environment that promotes the development and correction of the motor, mental, speech and communication spheres during the joint stay and / or activity of children, and their interaction with adults. In its turn, the habilitation and developing environment includes five components: social support; diagnostics; medical and re-adaptation; subject-play; psychological — pedagogical. Presented components of environment promote and improve the development of children of infant and early age with autism spectrum disorders or the risk of their occurrence with the aim to maximize the possible socialization of children. The experience describes a number of technologies implemented within the mentioned components.
