Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by deficits in social interactions and communication and repetitive stereotypical behaviors. Early recognition and treatment are critical to the treatment gains and prognosis of this disorder in children and adolescents. However, there can be several limitations to initiating a timely intervention, including financial constraints, limited resources, lack of trained providers, and lack of access to health care. In this context, non-specialist mediated interventions for ASD can provide an alternative approach to address the treatment gaps and lack of resources. The current article provides an overview of such interventions for children and adolescents with ASD. [Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services, 57(5), 15-19.].
