Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are significantly more likely to have an unmet need for therapy than children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but they are similar in unmet needs compared with children with cerebral palsy (CP). We identify barriers to appropriate care in children with special health care needs and areas for future inquiry.
