Can Autism Be Treated?

Autism stays with a person for their whole life; there isn’t a cure for it.

The good news is that with early diagnosis, therapies, and interventions, children with autism are able to overcome or adjust to many of the challenges they have to face.

No matter what the treatment, the earlier a child starts the better.

Some of the more popular treatments for autism include educational, behavioral, and medical interventions. 

Many other interventions are available, but not all of them have been proven by researchers to work, and some are controversial. Be careful and cautious if you are a parent thinking of starting your child with autism on a new treatment plan.

If you think your child may benefit from a treatment, talk to your doctor or school professionals and ask them to help you.
