Hi, I have a teenaged cousin who has symptoms of ASD. I know that early intervention would have helped him a lot but the family was not aware about autism. Is there any kind of therapy which can help him at this age?. He has not been screened/diagnosed yet. Thanks

You will first have to get assessment by a psychologist who is certified to carry out assessment

Yes, it's important to get an assessment first. The objective of the assessment won't be to label the child, but to find out his strengths, weaknesses, symptoms, based on which individualised intervention can be planned. A detailed case-history before assessment is even more important for parent-guidance, diet modification and much more.
