§ 20. Treatment or service of persons with an autism spectrum disorder. Providers are strongly encouraged to evaluate persons diagnosed with an autism spectrum
disorder for co-occurring or otherwise diagnosed medical conditions when clinical
symptomatology is present or suspected and prescribe appropriate treatments or services
in alignment with care practices for the condition, illness, injury, disease, or disability. Providers may consider, without limitation, whether or not a medication or any ingredient,
allergen, potential toxicant, or artificial agent may exacerbate clinical symptomatology
of autism spectrum disorder or a related or co-occurring or otherwise diagnosed medical
condition and, if so, may consider adopting measures that would result in the reduction
or elimination of risk to the patient.
