Autism expert witnesses often have backgrounds in mental health issues, among other related disciplines, as the condition may require varying forms of treatment, depending on the particular nature of each specific case. Autism refers to a mental health condition in which the afflicted individual has difficulties communicating at an effective level, in addition to other problems with social interaction. Autism expert consulting may provide valuable insight for cases involving such issues as psychology, speech and language pathology, psychiatry, clinical neuropsychology, pediatric neuropsychology, occupational therapy, rehabilitation, neurofeedback, biofeedback, pediatric psychology, neuroscience, and other issues concerning mental health, as each may be at the focus of an autism-related court case.
Autism experts are often from a background working in child psychology, since the condition often causes learning disabilities in children, as well as other problems with behavioral health, including anxiety and various emotional issues. As with any case pertaining to behavioral health and other areas of psychology, it is important that a medical records review be conducted for each patient, as failing to do so may result in insufficient treatment.
Autism experts may also have knowledge of trauma, speech pathology, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), toxic exposure, memory disorders, concussion, Asperger’s syndrome, attention deficit disorder (A.D.D.), and other issues pertaining to mental health.
