Autism Can Improve with Age

There are many theories and ideas regarding care and treatment of autism.  Some treatment has become standard practice.  After years of research, other, newer ideas have begun to take hold regarding care and treatment of autism.  New treatment ideas have brought positive results, and even some experimental treatments have helped alleviate the symptoms of autism.

Some of the more accepted treatments of autism include:

• Education and behavior – Therapists use specific interventions to help improve language and social skills, as well as working with parents to help children develop and strengthen those skills.
• Use of medication – Medication to deal with symptoms of depression, anxiety, attention deficit disorder and other issues can be prescribed to treat children with autism who have these and other secondary symptoms.
• Other therapies, such as chelation therapy – which is not FDA approved and is only in experimental stages – have been used by parents and holistic practitioners to treat children with autism.  A variety of results have been reported, most of them being positive.

Though there is no known cure for autism, specific treatments are designed to work on specific symptoms.  There have been many advancements when it comes to treating autism, and there is evidence that substantial improvement can be made with the appropriate treatment for the right symptoms.  Healthcare professionals agree that if a child has intervention and treatment as early as possible they have a greater chance of maximum improvement.

Many children experience dramatic improvement through treatment, especially as they get older, and especially if the treatment was initiated when they were young enough.  Many children with autism grow up to live normal lives.
