The Utah Autism Initiative Committee guidelines for choosing services:

  • Is there strong evidence that it is effective? 
  • Is it safe? What are the possible side effects? 
  • Is the information reported objective and outcome-based, rather than testimonials?

Be cautious if:

  • There are claims being made that it will produce quick results. 
  • High pressure tactics are being used. 
  • Payment is required before services are delivered. 

Consult with your medical provider, mental health professional, or education team. They can help in making decisions about diagnostic methods, therapies, and products or services. They can:

  • Identify quality research. 
  • Help you to be aware of and recognize potential side effects. 
  • Help you monitor responses to treatments.
