Jane Powell from the University of Regina is working on a research study with children ages 5 to 11 with ASD who struggle with one or more transitions at home.  Please see the attached link to her letter below. 

Obtaining a Primary Care Physician and/or Pediatrician

Dr. Petryk, Developmental Pediatrician with Child and Youth Services, reminds families of the importance of obtaining a primary care physician to manage their child’s daily medical needs and follow-up. Medical investigation deemed appropriate by the medical professional can be completed with the primary care physician. Also, genetic testing can be ordered by the child’s pediatrician. Dr. Petryk is available on a consulting basis with the child’s medical team. The medical team includes the primary care physician and/or pediatrician-those working with the family to ensure best care and practices for the child.

If you require assistance with scheduling an appointment, please contact your Autism Centre clinician.
