Dr. Coplan has attained recognition in all three medical specialties pertaining to child development: Pediatrics, Child, Neurodevelopmental Disabilities), and Child Psychiatry
Dr. Coplan’s book, Making Sense of Autistic Spectrum Disorders: Create the brightest future for your child with the best treatment options introduces a revolutionary three-dimensional model of ASD that simultaneously takes into account a child’s atypical features, level of general intelligence, and age. This 3D model provides a “roadmap” on which to chart a child’s progress over time, and a framework for making decisions about the best therapies at each stage of development. His book also addresses the many conflicting claims regarding causation of autistic spectrum disorder, proven and unproven interventions, and possible reasons for the so-called “explosion” of cases of ASD.
In his article "Is one of my patients the next Adam Lanza" he discusses causes, identifying and preventing tragedies like those in Newtown and the recent killings in Santa Barbara.
