Abstract: A poster presentation regarding the impact of cultural variations on autism spectrum disorder treatment. Introduction: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a group of neurodevelopmental disorders that is associated with lifelong impairment in socialisation, communication, and behaviour. Risperidone and aripiprazole (RiAr) are the only approved drugs by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of irritability associated with ASD in children and adolescents. Cultural variations may impact the approach towards ASD treatment in India and Malta. Aims: The aim of the research was to develop and administer a questionnaire to psychiatrists in India and Malta to evaluate cultural variations which may impact the approach towards the treatment of ASD.
