dc.description.abstractChildren with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are often prescribed medications to help control self-injurious behaviors, aggression, compulsive behaviors, and hyperactivity. Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) should be familiar with medication-related behavior changes and side effects. The purpose of this study was to evaluate SLPs' self-assessment of knowledge regarding medications prescribed to children with ASD. SLPs registered with the Kansas Speech- Language Hearing Association were provided a link to an online survey. The response rate was 13%, (n = 56). Overall, 88% of respondents felt they had a good understanding of ASD characteristics; but only 15% felt they had a good understanding of ASD medications. Only 14% were satisfied with their medication knowledge, 79% wanted to be more knowledgeable, and 60% felt they knew where to locate medication information. SLPs that completed continuing education were more likely to be satisfied with their knowledge regarding ASD characteristics than with ASD medications.en_US
