Medication Management

  • Medication management for autism helps ensure medications are used appropriately and effectively, minimizing potential risks and side effects.
  • If medication could be beneficial, you or your child will receive a personalized plan using medications and dosages tailored to their unique needs and how they respond to treatment.
  • Our goal is to use the necessary amount of medication to effectively manage symptoms, as well as re-evaluate the need for medication regularly.


  • Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that shows exactly how your brain is functioning so you can learn how your brain reacts to specific triggers.
  • Neurofeedback helps build focusing skills and extend attention span, and it enables many to continue improving these skills even after treatment has ended.
  • The treatment “trains” the brain without altering your brain chemistry, offering positive results without potential side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is autism?

Autism, formally known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a complex neurodevelopmental condition that affects a person’s social skills, communication, relationships, and behavior. The term “spectrum” reflects the wide range of symptoms and abilities individuals with autism may have. Symptoms of autism can vary widely from mild to severe, including difficulties with social interaction, repetitive behaviors, and challenges in verbal and nonverbal communication. Some individuals may have significant cognitive delays, while others may have high intelligence and learn quickly but struggle with applying their knowledge in everyday situations.

Is there treatment for autism?

Most patients benefit from a combination of treatments that are personalized to their specific situation and needs. We often combine traditional treatments with integrative approaches like our personalized fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness program. We believe integrative treatment that includes nutrition, sleep hygiene, and daily physical activity makes the biggest difference for our patients. 

When is autism usually diagnosed?

Autism is typically diagnosed in early childhood, with most diagnoses made between the ages of 2 and 3 years old. Early signs can sometimes be observed before the age of 1, and in some cases, autism can be reliably diagnosed as early as 18 months. 

Early diagnosis and intervention can greatly improve a child’s development and long-term prognosis. Parents and caregivers are often the first to notice developmental delays or the early signs of autism. Pediatricians can screen for autism during regular check-ups, and if there are concerns about a child’s development, they may refer the child to a specialist or integrative mental health center like ResWell for a comprehensive evaluation.

Do you do telehealth appointments for autism treatment at home?

The first meeting is usually in person. We provide telehealth follow-up appointments to make treatment as easy and convenient as possible for you or your child. Specific scheduling depends on the treatment plan developed with your provider.

Do you accept insurance for your assessments and autism spectrum treatments?

While we do not accept insurance, we provide patients with the documentation necessary to file a claim with their insurance carriers.

How do the services ResWell offers compare to other autism treatment centers?

ResWell focuses on medication management, neurofeedback, and complementary integrative services such as fitness, nutrition and mindfulness. For autism therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and other areas of specialized support, ResWell will refer out to our trusted network.

Do your experts collaborate on care with other experts in the community?

Yes! Many patients who come to us for integrative treatment already have a specialized team of care providers, who offer services such as autism therapy. ASD requires a larger team with a variety of different specialties for comprehensive care, which is why many visit us for treatment options such as medication management, neurofeedback, and other integrative services.
