TREATMENT-
Children don’t ”outgrow” autism, and it cannot be cured. there is no medicine that treats autism itself, but medicine may help with some of a symptom of autism, such as aggressive behavior or sleeplessness.
Research has been shown that very intense behavior and language therapy may help some children with therapy, some children may improve as they mature.
