Though there is no known cure as of yet for autism, there are treatments that can help improve the quality of life for autistic children. When parents look for a treatment for autism for their child they should consider several factors. For instance, look for programs that deal specifically with behavior and self-care skills. Look for programs that provide individual attention and opportunities to interact with peers.
Autism treatment is frequently multifaceted. A course of treatment may include medication to control specific symptoms as well as behavioral therapy. Depending on how verbal a child is, a speech therapist or trained aid may be incorporated into the mix.
