Oral health is a very important component of healthy daily living. But for some children with autism, oral health habits can be challenging.
Autism Speaks has teamed up with Colgate and Philips-Sonicare to create a Dental Tool Kit: a guide, resources, and video to provide tips for improving oral hygiene at home. Other information assists both parents and dental professionals to make a visit to the dentist's office less stressful and more productive, including information on preparing for a dental visit, forms to use for the visit, and a visual schedule used to help the child understand more about the visit.
