Doctor experienced to treat autistic adults
My 24 year old autistic son (Kevin) was seeing a wonderful doctor at the Autism Center at UMDNJ, but that doctor has left the center and we are now in search of a new psychiatrist. In the past my son has had a few good doctors, but they were pediatric specialists. Now that my son is an adult, it is very difficult to find a doctor experienced in the treatment of adult autism. Can anyone recommend an good psychiatrist who specializes in treating adults with autism? After having my son treated by an expert in the field, it is difficult to just "settle" for a doctor who really has no understanding of this disorder in adults. Kevin's doctor was a psychopharmacologist- specializing in meds, which is important for Kevin because he has such behavior issues and needs to be on meds. Where do I go to get appropriate care for my son in New Jersey???
